Main window too large...

Post by Gils » Thu May 17, 2018 2:34 pm

Hi,
On my MacBook Pro (15 pouces, mi-2009) with OSX El Capitan (10.11.6) , Usenetic (v 0.95.1) works well and the main window take the totality of the screen.
On my MacBook Pro (Retina 13 pouces, 2015) with macOS High Sierra (10.13.4), the main window is truncated on the right of the screen as the main window is too large.
I can move the main window, and I can enlarge it but I cannot reduce it.
This is not cool :o((
Best regards.
Gils

The window is truncated, on the right, nearly the middle of "connect/disconnect from usenet servers" icon

Thats odd. I am working on a Mac Book Pro 13 inch 2017 and all works well.
What is the screen resolution you are using on your Mac book Pro 2015?

Sorry about the french language :o))

I'm using the resolution "by default" (par défaut). If i select the resolution to the right (blue order) the width is ok but the height is too short.
And i prefer to use the resolution by default...

Do you think that there is a solution to get the right size of the window according the size and resolution of the screen?

The view in MegaSearch is wide because there is a lot of information per row to show.
Making the screen smaller might result in a lot of horizontal scrolling.

Also the title/toolbar has a lot of buttons that are horizontal orientated and screen width is locked to the minimal width of the title/toolbar.

But I'll try to create a nice solution to make the screen smaller in the next release.

Thanks.
