Recently upgraded to Elements 11 and OSX10.8 Mountain Lion on a 21.5inch iMac. In some of the tools the options pane at the bottom of the window is extending off the bottom of the screen, in particular the text tool. This makes it difficult to select some of the options.

Just as a matter of interest, I was thinking of buying both the 21.5" iMac and Elements 11 which I am not farmiliar with, what did you have to do to solve the problem?

It wasn't a problem. I had resized the workspace which pushed the tool area off the bottom of the window. I hadn't realised I had done this so the tool options disappeared. Stupid of me.
More generally the 21inch iMac is a super machine. I moved from a Mac Pro after it developed a problem with its Power Management Unit. I bought the i7 3.1Ghz iMac. A starting price for a Pro would have been more than double and I don't need that anymore. Love the machine.
Elements 11 takes a little bit of getting used to. It hasn't been universally accepted. It it however a superb photo editor, probably the best around short of the full Photoshop. The new organiser is a different matter. Very disappointed in that. I was hoping to move to it from iPhoto for better keyword and RAW support but that's not going to happen. Organizer is very restricted with a very emphasis towards social networking ... in fact just like iPhoto. Now looking at Aperture and Lightroom for an organiser. Leaning towards Lightroom just now but haven't decided yet.
Hope this helps.
