Can't resize UI in ESS v9

Recommended Posts

Just upgraded fromm ESS ver 8 to ver 9

 

I expected the UI to look different - there are fashions to webpages and applications just like anything else.

 

However, I didn't expect a decrease in user-friendliness.

 

I can't resize/maximise the network connection window or the log file window, which renders them frustrating at best and at worst, useless compared to version 8.

 

I don't see why this change has been made, given that the advanced setup screen can be resized and maximised.

 

I use a desktop PC with a 21" monitor, and I don't want my experience to be constrained by software that thinks everyone uses a tablet or smartphone.

You should be able to open them in a new window which is resizable. There's an icon for this to the left of the question mark icon that opens up on-line help.

Unfortunately "Running processes" window has no such icon.

 

And I also think the regular UI should be resizable itself.

I too find it annoying that when you resize a screen the resizing is not remembered; It goes back to default on exit.

This is especially frustrating with the firewall rules edit screen. The default size is very cramped.

I've had enough of this new UI.  How do I obtain and reinstall version 8 ?

you will use the username and password you previously used with v8.

Please fix this broken UI in v9.x.  Ridiculous.  And while we are at it..."show splash screen at startup"?  What is this?  1995?  I hate this...and I hate that I have to disable it for each user that logs in.

no, 2015. many programs have a splash screen at start up, eg. photoshop.

 

you can just leave it as is, it last for a second or two and disappears immediately. not such a big deal.

I cant find the icon to open "Network Connections" in a new window. Has this feature been removed?
