800 x 600 is Not really 800x600?

Anyone else notice that in 800x600 mode the screen for WD is blocked by the bottom menu bar? Minor irritation…

Are you viewing WD maximized?

Yup - it cuts off the x axis of the bottom of the graph and half the rainfall numbers.

Make the bar dynamic (PITA IMO) and you see the whole thing.

Tom

It’s doing that on mine too. Maximize fixes it temporarily till re-start.

i made a change to make it start int the center of the screen

just click on the window bar at the top and drag up a bit

but i can put it back to the way it was…

Nope! The bottom is still cut off. I’ll count the pixels and report back.
Tom

ok, i have just changed to 800x600 and fixed up

uploading a new verison now

(i remember i did play around with this)

Not working in 9.54d.

Tom

you guys forget i am not on high speed internet!
try vers 9.55, ready now

Nope! Task bar still blocks the bottom.

Tom

maybe dont have task bar always on top?

Yeah, but the is a PITA because the minimized options (like 1-wire sensor graphs) get hidden and it is click-o-rama to get them. Anyway, don’t worry about it for now.

Tom

ok
milking time!

Better now with 9.55a

Yes, on W2K it is. I better take another look on XP.

Tom

Nope! Ther eis clearly an issue with XP and 800x600. Tried it out on yet another PC running XP. Same thing - task bar cuts off bottom of WD.

om

its the extra wide windows bar across the top
use windows 95/NT style and its OK

Is this a tick box option somewhere on WD? Or do you mean on XP?

Tom

in XP’s windows preferences

Nope. There is no specific setting that selects 95/NT task bar at the bottom (or top for that matter) in XP SP1… so it is still a no-go.
