Hi ! I still encounter some problem with the responsiveness to small screen. (Like this thread.)
This time, it concern the compilation screen : I'm unable to reach the bottom or to resize the window. So I just can't use it.

I agree it's better for an application to be responsive to the screen size, but you can resize from the top, then drag the window up to reveal the bottom. My compile window appears to be capable of being shorter than yours--you're not having the issue where it can't be resized at all, are you?

Well, sadly, I'm having the problem where I can't resize it at all. :oops:
(I fully agree that that resizing could be enough for small screen, when it's working)

Greetings - If you right click on the title bar, select Size, and press the down arrow key, the window will be resized if possible to disclose its bottom edge, at least on Win 10 v. 19.03. Just press Enter to accept the changed size.

Hi ! Thnaks for the tip, unfortunately it doesn't work (I updated to windows19.03, so it's not a problem with that). It resize a little bit, but not enough to display the bottom of the screen, so I still can't use it.

Your screen size MUST be at least 1080px high at 100% scaling. Your display does not meet these minimum requirements. From the screenshot and the amount of icons in your taskbar, I feel like you are using some small monitor size laptop (ZenBook) which have by default 150% scaling, which actually reduces the amount of display pixels,

Try changing your monitor scaling to 100% and check the result, or use a monitor with at least 1080px height at 100% scaling.

The Compile dialog cannot fit all the compile settings on the small screen in this particular case.

Oh ! I wasn't aware of that feature for small screen. With a 100% scaling, it works perfectly.
Thank you very much for the tip, and sorry for the disturbance ! :oops: :oops: :oops:
