Form and control proportions



  • This issue is still bugging me, after all of these releases: A lot of PowerArchiver dialogs and controls are still too small, are still non-resizable, and still have cut-off text on my 120-DPI system.

    Other archivers don’t have this problem. But I don’t want to use other archivers!

    The attached screen caps show what I mean. Tragic? No. But it’s ugly, and in some cases (mainly the extract dialogs), really inconvenient.

    I could hack PowerArc.exe to improve some of these things, but I suspect that would be frowned upon.

  • Here are more examples. As I said, none of them alone are a deal breaker, but when just about every dialog has something wrong with it, or is super tiny and hard to work with, it gets quite frustrating. This is my primary complaint with PowerArchiver in daily usage.

    Hi,

    Nice to see you again :-).

    We have planned these improvements for 9.5 - we have to make most windows resizable, plus automatically resizable based on your settings. It is not a lot of work but I can see hundreds of little issues with debuging it so it will need proper testing which 9.5 will bring.

    thanks!

    Thanks for the info! Great news. Glad I’m an alpha tester. 🙂
