[bug report] I hate scroll bars
« on: July 20, 2008, 03:01:41 AM »
On my Windows Server 2008 CHS

Sometimes(many times) FARR v2.00.145 look like this.



Get rid of the scroll bars, mouser :-)


Update: I fixed the problem: The 'name' column is too long. Just drag the 'score' column left

do you have custom font settings configured?
this problem can occur when FARR miscalculates the needed height for the window.

Thanks for the fast reply.

No. All settings are default except the target search folder

Look at this

i'll try to fix it, i know the basic cause but not specifically why it kicks in.
the easiest thing may be for me to put a special override setting in the font customization dialog that would take care of this problem.

OK, sorry my bad, mouser, after justify the 'scroll' column little left, the scroll bar is gone.

I think the 'name' column is too long. LOL

Since this is a related matter, here's what happens when I type a non-existing file path:
