Re: Avant Development Update

Ho hum, I feel I just have to add my 2 knutz here as well. *grins* I have been using windows traditional skin since I started using Avant some 4,5 or 6 years ago. I tried them all, but I like a traditional light gray skin, I think I see all the labels better/clearer with that. Also, Take as much tim...

Re: Make Web Pages "Always Fit Window" toggle 'Y/N'.

Ah, actually, I did look for just that. I did not find anything, but I could have missed it somehow. If you know of one, point me to it and I'll give it a try.

Re: Make Web Pages "Always Fit Window" toggle 'Y/N'.

Ok noted, and thanks, although it really was a rhetorical question. *grins* Anyone going to comment on my request for . . . "Make All Web Pages "Always Fit Window WIDTH" toggle 'Y/N' or toggle on/off?" I'm guessing this issue has at some point in the past been visited, especially since Opera came in...

Re: Make Web Pages "Always Fit Window" toggle 'Y/N'.

By that I mean "Window Width." I suppose it should be obvious what I meant, but one should never assume anything and again, I was not able to edit the original post. *Why is that?*

Make Web Pages "Always Fit Window" toggle 'Y/N'.

I noticed this is a feature in Opera . . . "Make Web Pages Always Fit Window" - 'toggle Y/N'. . . and seems to work quite well. Can this option be placed in both Avant and Orca browsers? It would also be nice to see that feature in Firefox 3.5/6+++ as well. :) I personally get really tired of horizo...

Re: Zoom Function (bug) in Orca I think?

Ah, thanks. That will no doubt be very helpful. BTW, where are you that you can be up at 5am my time? PST. I thought I was the only one that stays up all day and night. The 2010 Olympics just ended 6 blocks from where I live. Honestly, I'm glad it is over now. Never has Vancouver seen so many people...

Re: Zoom Function (bug) in Orca I think?

Ya, sorta. This was the link I used for the fonts. You might also need to know that in the area for changing the link colors I can select a color to change but when I close the window in automatically defaults back to the previous color (purple) I had to use a different method to change that one. li...

Re: Zoom Function (bug) in Orca I think?

Ah, yes I have. I am indeed familiar with all the adjustments available there. Did you not have the same problem? Oh and my font size in Orca is set a 22. If that makes any difference? You do know that there is no adjustment for the font size in Orca or selecting the link colors as they are not link...

Yo hi there. I just ran across a bug in the zoom function in ORCA. I hope this is the right place to ask about an Orca Bug? So you can try and duplicate my actions I'll include a link in here to (one) of the pages this happens on. - - - - - http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=67788 The below ...

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

OK. I reset everything back the way it was and that seems to have included my task bar icons as well, so there was no need for me to try that. I still would like more info on just how do fix that in the future and how that re-setting (del user profile) works. But only when you feel you have time to ...

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Umm, It figures you might have a fix for that, but before I try that can you explain it a bit better, after all it says del user profile? Which makes me hesitate. Send reply in an e-mail if you prefer? You do have that, right? *Grins* Oh and do I enter the whole thing in the RUN box or do I enter th...

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Huh, it wasn't meant to be rude. But Magic is funny that way.:) Ok note my new setting in my profile/left side bar and here are two new screen shots. My Avant scroll bars are marginally wider but as I feared the icons in the right hand side (task bar) got invisibly small again. Setting are 120% dpi,...

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Huh, very good. Wow would have guessed that Kudos has a sense of humor. I'm going to try setting my dpi to 120%. I fear doing this but it should not interfere with Icon sizes. I have other resolution problems related to this 150% size as well. Here's hoping for good luck. and a little magic spell to...

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Did you notice in your screen shots that in Avant the scroll bar is still slightly narrower, it is hard to chatch but there none the less, although both are wide, Orca is way wider than I would ever need. If you look at my Orca screen shot, that is the right size for me to use or like the scroll bar...

Oh bugger, I was afraid you might ask me to do that. Every time I mess around in the appearance section, every time, no matter what I save or don't save. My ICONS change size automatically to invisibly small, even when reloading my fav theme setting, it takes me hours to reset those ICONS to a visib...

Re: Avant's vertical scroll bar width changed size?

Huh, that is weird. Here is my comparison screen shots.

Your windows are Maxed, close but not quite exact. However the borders are still narrow in mine when maxed. Huh a bit perplexing this is.

Addition: From Kudos: I set my screen DPI to 150% and the screen fonts to very large, in order to approximate your system, then I tried both Avant and Orca - but I could not replicate the problem. - - - from me: I doubt this is the cause anyway but my fonts are set to normal and dpi read 150% = (144...

Huh, well personally, I object to maximized windows. I remember why as well. A long time ago I used to max them all until I came across full screen windows that would not close and I couldn't find any way to get out except to do a cold shutdown. I am given to understand that a cold shut down is not ...
