Improve Preview Window layout (wide windows)
« on: September 04, 2013, 07:06:16 am »
The Preview window layout is terrible for wide windows.
Ding and HS2 produced a "tagwin bottom style" patch that's available in the forums.
It's long past time for something like that to make it into the official version.

Some of us dock the Preview window at the bottom, and have it very wide but not very tall.
The stock Preview window is unusable in that configuration (you get to see about 3 or 4 lines of code).

Exactly ! Also when using only 1 monitor for whatever reason this is a problem.

Yes, exactly so here too. The preview window layout used to OK but changed several versions back, and it's always annoyed me since. I believe I had a jolly good whine about it at the time, too  ;)
