As this screenshot indicates, AWB is inexplicably cut off because my screen resolution is too small.

Duplicate: Use AWB on a screen with resolution 1024 by 600.


Workaround: Using my netbook's VGA output to plug this computer into a larger monitor.

Yup, know about that.... I've tried to fix it, but with no luck so far.

Rather than maximise the app, what happens if you try to manually resize it down to fit your screen? I've just tried resizing AWB here and it would certainly get down to be small enough, but then again I'm starting off with a 1600×1200 screen.

I would do that if I could reach the bottom handles of the screen, which I cannot because AWB is too large to fit on my screen.

Can you resize from the top left, then move the window up and left?

Or Alt+Space to bring down the system menu, then S to select Size, then use the arrow keys.

The problem with the above remedies is that it does not expose more of what's on the bottom -- it just increases the size of what is already visible proportionally.

Just stating the obvious: This bug still occurs in

And Resizing the window simply increases the already-visible diff view area, it doesn't affect the fact that the bottom of the window is still cut off. Note also that this cut-off problem continues even if I adjust my screen resolution to (netbook) 1024x768. Please, try to fix this!

This is still a problem, as of today, on my 1024x600 netbook screen. Very frustrating.

UPDATE! This is still not working on my netbook either. 4 years since the bug was reported.

I actually posted this below as well #"Remove" and "Filter" buttons disappearing from bottom of list, didn't realise a duplicate was already there :P

Still a problem in is there any solution in sight except giving up AWB on small screens? Maybe the minimum height of the diff view area could be decreased as a quick fix. Thanks!

Are we planning a party for this bug's *sixth* birthday?

This won't be fixed unless we rewrite the code for good....
