Hi Ahto,

I just upgraded to v 2.2.1 from an earlier release and noticed that the PWA window can only be reduced in height to about 4.25" on 1024 x 768 resolution. Depending on the site you're visiting this can be a real restriction. Some of the sites have the sign-in on the top half of the screen, but many have it mid-screen and some closer to the bottom. Is there a reason why the screen cannot be reduced?

With the addition of the search feature, it is only necessary to show one or two entries to get what you need most of the time.

Keep up the great work on a great product!

Ken, the reason why the window height is restricted is that "welcome screen" (when no file open) will not fit otherwise, when toolbar is wrapped. So far I have not received other complaints, but I can theoretically change this if people find it problematic.

Calling all users,

Don't other people have the same problem? Perhaps I'm using the program differently than most. I have the PWA screen positioned at the bottom of the screen. When I go to certain sites (quite a few) the sign on dialog box is on the mid to lower portion of the screen. A few examples are: https://www.aaa.com/scripts/WebObjects.dll/AAAOnline.woa/7003/wo/86x42jploQkS2OZ6xy61pu19B7I/0.

I use autofill with the minimize option, so the placement of the PWA screen doesn't matter to me. Sorry, KR

Hello Disposable_Hero,
I also use autofill with the minimize option, but the problem is, if the PWA screen is blocking the dialog box where the user name or password are to be filled in, how do you get focus to those fill in boxes. You can't click on them because they are under the PWA screen.

My not so elegant workaround is to have half the PWA screen hanging off the bottom part of the screen. This causes other issues with the start menu bar not coming up when it is set to autohide. I get around this by having the PWA screen shifted to the side so that I can click on an edge of it near the clock to bring it to the front.

I can't believe more people aren't having this same issue. Do most of you encounter sign-on screens that that only have the fill in boxes at the top? The trend I have noticed over the last 3 to 6 months is that more and more sites are starting to put these boxes lower on the screen.

Any other input?

Ken
