FARR GUI Behavior
« on: June 16, 2006, 09:57:44 PM »
Firstly, I absolutely adore this program. A feature I'd like to see in the next release is the ability to dock FARR, or at least have FARR remember it's position. After using it several times, it tends to creep upward. I like it to hover just above the Windows toolbar. Also, I've noticed that sometimes FARR shrinks vertically, partially hiding the help and options buttons.

Regardless, thanks so much for a FANTASTIC utility!!!

Kind Regards,

thanks and welcome to the site siouxdax!

farr certainly should be remembering it's position! if it is shrinking or drifting, that's a bug and i will try to fix it.

(unless it is "drifting" in order to remain onscreen when too many results need to be displayed).

one thing you might try if you are having it near bottom of screen is to select the option saying the editbox should be on bottom:

Hello Mouser:
Thanks for the reply. I do have the edit bar always on the bottom and I only have it set to display the first three entries, so there's ample room below. The program does drift upwards over time, and it doesn't hold its horizontal position either. Other than that I can't imagine living without this program. :)
