Hi Nick

I frequently use an eeePC running with a 1024x600 screen.  The only regularly encountered app problem with my eeePC involves screen height... and I'm not certain it happens often, if ever, in GRAMPS.  However, I still think it would be very nice to offer a screen height & width setting preference option on GRAMPS for those folks using extra large or odd sized screens.  I find that option helps me a lot in other apps.

Thanks for all you and the team do.  I appreciate it immensely.

Pax Vobiscum,
...mark (Mark Rabideau)

There isn't much special code for small screens at the moment.  Some 
users commented that the sidebar and bottombar looked rather large on 
netbook screens.  The netbook mode was an attempt to make things look 
better.

By doing a quick google it looks like that most netbooks run on a 
1024x600 resolution with a good proportion also using 800x480.  I think 
that most of Gramps should work well at 1024x600.  I expect some 
limitations with 800x480, for example scrollbars on the sidebar.  The 
Preferences screen will also be too big for 800x480.

What resolution(s) do you use?  Please let us know if you experience any 
usability problems.

Nick.
