its 1024x600 screen as it is.
Also, in relation to the other tabs and the ability to resize the
panes, PCGen on the Mac doesn't remember the pane sizes well. I am
constantly having to resize the panes back to where I can see whats in
them. PCGen seems to want to provide the most real-estate for the
lower right pane.
- Hi all,
FYI, I've amalgamated all of the comments on the mailing list onto the talk page for the new Summary tab.
It's really pleasing to hear that a majority of you are happy with the minimalist 0.2 design and that we're now at the stage of producing small tweaks to that.
Connor et al will be continuing to code up the latest version and John will work on producing another screenshot with some solutions to the common issues that have been reported.
Other questions/comments were more for the developers and they've taken them on board although there will be a further rounds of discussion once a working prototype is let loose upon the world.
Thanks again for the awesome input on the new UI, I think it's going to be a major positive step for PCGen.

There you edit a bit and then switch focus to an other application. When you switch focus back to PCGen it will switch to the Portrait note. Very annoying.
