I was searching for something in the list archives, and came upon this old
This seems to indicate that the setup window size was once larger than
640x480 (but still fixed, I assume). All of the (relatively) recent setup
window size discussions resulted in something like "it would be too hard
to make the setup window resizeable".
So, here's a suggestion: include either a command-line option, or another
set of radio buttons or a select box in setup that would let people select
from pre-defined window sizes. Granted, this is a hack, and not as
flexible as allowing resizing, but it will do for most people who
requested resizing, and eliminates the problem with having to re-compute
the positions of controls on resize.
This doesn't seem too hard to implement... Or am I missing something?

It took the computational power of three Commodore 64s to fly to the moon.
It takes a 486 to run Windows 95. Something is wrong here. -- SC sig file
