    Inkscape bugs, quirks, frustrations

    Following on from an old, closed thread, I have run into a frustration with Inkscape 0.9.2.

    The Document Properties dialog is not resizeable, there are some options (borders and antialiasing) that are not visible, because they are below the bottom edge of the screen (resolution is 1366 × 768).

    I eventually got to them, by going into Settings -> Displays and rotating my display 90°. But on this computer, rotating the display does not thange the axes of the trackpad, and so moving the cursor around to get to the checkoxes is a real pain...

    Is there a way to
    • get this fixed in future versions of Inkscape?
    • stop developers from making dialogs that are not resizeable, or if they must be not resizeable at least give us scrollbars?
    • set parametres somewere else (config files or gnome settings, for example)?

    No idea about changes from the inkscape devs, and this is not the place to ask for it either, but you can move the dialogue window for Doc Properties by holding left Alt and dragging the window with your cursor anywhere in it.

    Left-alt does not drag the window around. I put the pointer on the dialogue "frame", click with MB3, a contextual menu appears, I select "move"... and the top edge of the dialog won't move higher than the top of the display.

    That is strange!

    At this instant I have open inkscape 0.9 as I am now using my 16.04 install. not 18.04, but in that version the left Alt held down allows me to drag the file properties window wherever I wish; were you holding down the Alt key and putting the mouse cursor in the window as I suggested?

    Which DE are you using; I have Xubuntu.

    It's not exactly obvious, but the dialogues can be scrolled - but only when they are docked. To dock a dialogue, grab the area below the window-titlebar and pull it to the dock (on the left of the screen by default).
