Menu height



  • My Diagnostic menu is now long enough to go past the bottom of my screen and it will not scroll down to see the rest of the menu

    Status is about to hit the same problem

    Screen snip attached

    You can see at the top of the windows status bar, there is the very of the next item that can just been seen.

    Thanks
    Myk

    Go into System > General setup and configure it so the menu does not follow your browser. That mode is not meant for "short" screens.

    There's an open bug to find a way to accommodate that in the future.

    In addition, I think we could also take a couple pixels out of the top and bottom padding for each item without making it too tight to read.

    Or maybe even better would be to consolidate some of the menu items in to expandable sections.

    Many of the items in the diagnostics menu are not really diagnostics.



  • I have my browser zoomed to 75% to fit the widgets I want on the dashboard without needing to scroll, that helps the menu height as well. Along with the suggestions above possibly give us an option to set the font size so folks can adjust that too?



  • @stan-qaz:

    I have my browser zoomed to 75% …

    What strength magnifying glass do you use?



  • I'm a "75 %er" too, it actually looks great like that on a Retina Macbook screen.
