Vertical size of PL too big

Hi there,

I just find out that PL 7.8.2 can't anymore be resized (height of GUI).
It's a pain as the main window is too big to feet correctly on mini-PC's which are with maximum graphical sizes 1024 x 600
Trouble is bigger with the Insights window  :-[

Should it be possible to correct these for the next build please ?

Regards,

Yes, it can be resized. There is a limit to how small you can make it, but it should be entirely resizeable.

The Insights app isn't resizeable, yet.

I thought about it.. and make sure you don't have it inadvertently in 'split screen maximized' mode - available in Windows 8. If it's stuck in that mode, then you couldn't resize.

That's where it'd take half your screen from top to bottom.

To fix that, click the 'restore' button in the middle of the left buttons on the Lasso taskbar (top of Lasso's Window).

Nope i'm with XP and Seven.
I check the way it's going on my main "desktop" PC (with a big screen LoL) and right the PL window is resizable but the lowest height i can get is 600 px  ::)
That's why on the mini-PC's the whole main window don't feet correctly the screen whith taskbar not in autohide mode ...

It should be cool that you define that minimal height to something like 500 or 550 px

Ah, I see. I should have read closer... mini-PCs....

I had a user complaining about the distorted view when Lasso's window was too small, so I set new minimum size limits. Please one person, upset another :o.

I will lower the minimum allowed height a bit in future builds, see if we can get this right.

Right, if PL window was resized too small, it may become weird, but just to let you know, i resized the previous version of PL main window GUI to height = 530 px and it was fine as well to get a full display on the mini-PC's screens and to get a perfect view of all displaying options in PL  ;)

Thanks, I will use 530px in all future builds.

How is it in on these size displays with the latest beta v7.9.5.3?

If it's good, that's what we'll go with.

The new UI is going to take a while, but will eventually replace this legacy one. Until then, we'll be making sure this UI does it's job!
