VirtualBox Manager minimum vertical size is too large

Postby bqbauer » 4. Aug 2017, 19:22

On Solaris 11.3, I can't resize the GUI vertically from the new large default. After the install of 5.2, it is now sized to display most of the VM attributes on the right side of the GUI. I'd like to size it much smaller as I could before 5.2 beta 1 and just have to scroll the windows as necessary, just as with previous versions.

Reason: Changed title to something more appropriate.

I see this on Linux (Ubuntu 16.04.3 64-bit and Slackware Current 64-bit) too.
:D

Would you mind changing the title of the thread? It's completely misleading. You *can* resize the VirtualBox Manager. You simply can't resize it vertically beyond a minimum size, right? So, a more appropriate title would be: "VirtualBox Manager minimum vertical size is too large", or "is not small enough", or something similar. But definitely not "can't resize"...

For what it's worth, I always run it vertically maximized, I love to see all the details at a glance. But, that's my personal preference, not what everybody likes...

I'll have a look what I can do but absolute minimum (as before) will not reachable. Still I will try to free some of space in both directions.
