Using stable dmenu-4.8 amd64 with sway, when activated it seems to hide the beginning possible choices beyond the left the display.
I can ask for the command I want, and execute it with return, but won't get it display (? in reverse video) in the selection zone of dmenu.

Any idea how to fix?

Thks 4 ur attention.

I remember reading somewhere that dmenu doesn't work with wayland, so you have to use something like bemenu instead.

^ From my memory

That's what I did in the first place, but I was tring to put dmenu back into the game since it is configured in /etc/sway/config ...
Time to fallback, or to search for alternate, I guess.

Thks 4 ur attention, interest & support.

Works fine @teotd.
The issue was caused by single monitor being connected to video2.
My guess I that upon such conditions, first part, e.g. masked, of dmenu horizontal list has been seen to video1.

Switching to video1 fixed.

Thks 4 ur attention, interest & support.
