    re-sizeable windows on a Mac.....

    Is it just me or are the windows for individual subjects not 'flowing' to fit the size of window you have open in Explorer?

    I have a 21" monitor here and I still have to horizontally scroll to read all the text!

    The main Contents/Intro page is fine, that re-sizes to what ever size of window I have open, its just the individual topics!

    Is it a Mac thing??

    Cheers

    I am using a 21" screen on a PC, but the only time I have to scroll is when someone puts in a long picture and it extends beyond the screen size :?

    Might be an OS9 thing then - we're not upgrading cause of the costs involved!

    If I maximise my window then no horizontal scolling is needed, but sometimes (when the boss is about) I just want a small window that I can easily hide behind the 'mac-world' site!! LOL

    cheers anyway

    I am using a 14.1 TFT powerbook on MAc OS 9.1 with my resolution set to 1024x768 and it fits perfectly.

    The same on my 12.1 TFT iBook which is on OS X running 1024x768

    It would appear the minimum width for the forum is set at 1024 pixels, so you will need at least this screen res to view it on full width, anything bigger will be able to use a smaller proportion of the screen!

    my screen res is 1600 x 1200 @ 85 hz!!

    if you un-maximise your window and make it smaller do you have to scroll horizontally to read all of the text or does it re-flow to fit the new window size???

    If I take it of max then I need to scroll as well. The problem is me and Rob both maximise everything when working on computers, and both use 1024x768 or bigger (depending on what computers we use) so the site has been designed to fit into those parameters.

    As with any website we will never be able to please everyone sorry.

    Mat,

    not having a go mate!!

    As said earlier, not a major gripe, and was just wondering if anyone else was experiencing the same thing.

    Finding the lowest common denominator when designing web based stuff can be quite hard sometimes and you will never cover every possible set-up and user prefs!!

    So cheers anyway!
