PlatformNetbook PCOSLinux and windows XPOS Version11.04 XP, SP3
Summary0010388: support of netbook resolution 1024x576
Descriptionversion 1.4.0.rc6

I cannot even see the buttons at the bottom of certain dialog. I need to google image the dialog name and hope to get a picture of the dialog and use the hot keys to push the right button.

I got stuck in the "Style" dialog where apparently I need to push "ctrl+a" to apply changes when creating new style. But I ended up in a situation where pushing that button combo, made a style the parent of all others.

Not being able to remove the style from there, all characters in my documents were modified and I need to reload an lose a part of my work.

It's just very annoying to work with. A simple scroll bar would do wonders. Sorry for my hot temper.

Thank You

yep this is a problem!

but, depending on your OS / window manager there may be workarounds...

what are you using?

Win XP, vista and Linux ubuntu (Gnome)

I was wondering if there was a tool in linux to "scroll the screen" but could not find one.

on gnome you can hold down the alt key and move a window without seeing the top bar...

on windows i think that you can do a similar thing by pressing alt+space bar, choosing "move window" (or similar") from the menu that pops up and then moving the window with the arrow keys

Workaround stated by ale in 0013499
as a workaround, you can press alt-a to apply the changes... and ESC to get out of the dialog.

or press the meta key plus the left mouse click to move around the window.

Craig, in 0009744:0025576 you wrote:
This has been fixed in 1.5.0.svn, and will not be looked at in the 1.4.x series.

Did you mean the height resolution issue is fixed in 1.5.x ?

If not should this resolution issue make it in to 1.6 ?
