undocked Message List doesn't want to resize
« on: February 04, 2015, 03:50:22 pm »
I'm experiencing some oddness with the Message List tool window. I undocked it, and am trying to drag the edge to make it larger. It seems that when I drag the edge too far horizontally (making it wider), the window snaps back to its smaller original size. This happens both when I drag the corner of the window or the right side edge. I've tried unchecking the "Dockable" option in the context menu, but it still happens.

Reproduced. I believe it is trying to maintain whatever original size it starts with. Thanks for the report.

If it helps, I've found that if I make the "Description" column wider, I can make the window wider. If nothing else, it's a temporary workaround.

Yep. If you make any of the columns wider such that you get a horizontal scrollbar, you can size the window up to the extent of the scrollbar.

This is not hotfixable, but it is fixed in the next point release (TBA). Thanks for the report!
