Organizer sidebar layout
« on: June 08, 2019, 06:23:00 PM »
Prob just missing this but trying out PM6+ on my laptop (Win10 Dell XPS15).
The Filter/Browse/Collections rows in the Organizer sidebar are scaling beyond the height of the screen.
As I increase/decrease the height of the PM6+ window it scales incorrectly to the same degree (so I always see the "wse" of Browse at the bottom and never get to see "Collections").
I can't see any context options to fix this.
I get the same effect whether I dock the panel left right top or bottom.
Any tips?

It's something we have to fix.

Cool.
If it helps, it works fine on my Win7 PC but that runs at a different resolution, so not sure if it's caused by OS or resolution or both or something else.

Perfect advice - worked - thanks.
Only change I found was to perform scaling by "System advanced" to avoid fuzzy fonts.
Thanks.

Just a follow up - the scaling override option is a problem for me in general use in that it makes text fuzzy and, worse, distorts image previews in the same way, making it harder to check critical focus. I've switched it back. Hopefully the fix for the sidebar is coming soon ;)
