Mac Resolution & Scrolling
« on: February 24, 2012, 04:43:39 PM »
I am not yet a customer, but I downloaded the trial version and noticed some issues on my Mac. Before I purchase I am wondering of this can be addressed somehow so I know the software will work properly when I buy it.
1. The Beersmith does not really seem to adjust itself to the window and screen size. I have a small 13 inch screen and a resolution of 1280x800. In some windows not everything fits on the screen, which results in scroll bars for example when i open a recipe. But the ribbon is still not displayed fully, particularly the Tools tab (see attached screenshot).
2. Scrolling, for example when I open a recipe, does not work with the regular scrolling function of the trackpad. I have to grab the scrollbar and move it around to make it scroll.

Any input would be appreciated, whether this is something that can be changed in settings, or how else to resolve it.

  Unfortunately the screen layout is fixed, but you can alleviate a lot of this by either hiding the left sidebar (close it) or at least making it smaller by dragging the divider.  For example most people with netbooks have to run with the sidebar closed and use the forward/back keys to navigate the My Recipes view.
