Thread: Excel Writer Step 4.2.0 r15662 - Dialog not resize sensitive.

    Default Excel Writer Step 4.2.0 r15662 - Dialog not resize sensitive.

    To avoid filing a JIRA for a non-official version, I write here.

    The Excel Writer Step in 4.2.0 at revision #15662 opens up in nearly with
    very large default widths and heights. Approx: 1546 x 808.
    On Windows and Linux you can make the dialog box larger just fine, but
    cannot reduce below the resolutions mentioned above without GUI components
    being hidden.
    The vast majority of components look like they could live with 1/6th the
    space they currently use.

    If feedback should not be given here of this kind, please let me know.
    What kind is wanted and where to write it.
    4.2.0 is really looking nice so far. We've been testing it almost daily
    with fairly good results.

    Hi Brandon,

    yap, you're right. This thing takes up a lot of space. The cause for this is that the "content" tab takes up so much space. Especially the table at the bottom. As a mitigation step we've provided scroll bars for the internal window. If you feel that this is not good enough, go right ahead and vote for this Jira case http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PDI-5611

    Cheers
    Slawo
