    Just installed PasswordSafe 3.26 for Windows on my Netbook with 800x600
    resolution and I saw that it is simply impossible to use PasswordSafe as many
    windows do not fit in this resolution. But at the same time, these windows
    have a lot of space for what you've done them so big, I do not understand. Are
    you going to do something to solve this problem?

    After deleting pwsafeRU.dll all works ok, but "Add Entry" and "Edit Entry"
    windows still not shown fully on 800x600 (now in horisontal =) ) and emply
    spaces on windows still big.

    Translations are not generally updated for testing or proof of concept
    intermediate (non-formal) releases.

    As long as it all fits, empty spaces are retained and reserved for future
    enhancements - plus sensible grouping of similar fields will often lead to
    additional space.

    When will the new software capabilities, then it will be a need for new
    interface elements. Similar options are grouped signed a frame, no? In the
    version about which I wrote above, all the windows are placed in like 800x600,
    but except for one that does not fit horizontally. The discrepancy between the
    versions of translation should not mean a crash or freeze-out any way.

    If one Property Page doesn't fit 800x600, please tell us which one so that we
    can see if it can be resolved.

    The Microsoft Property Sheet automatically sizes itself to fit the largest
    Property Page it has to show. We have no control over this! This may cause
    other property pages to have larger quantities of 'empty space' than we would
    have wished - but we cannot change this without increasing the number of
    property pages and splitting similar attributes across multiple pages. We wish
    to keep the page content the same whether it is used on a netbook, laptop or
    desktop.

    Non-formal versions are only tested with the embedded English strings. If you
    wish to test these, then you cannot use older released language DLLs. These
    language DLLs are produced by some of our users for the benefit of the
    PasswordSafe community. We do not ask them to translate every intermediate
    version as there are quite a few between formal releases. If you do not want
    to accept this restriction, then you have to wait for the formal release.

    I also have this problem. On my net book, the screen is wide but not tall.
    When I create a new login, I can enter all the information, but I can't click
    the button to save the record because it is below the edge of the screen.

    Which version are you using? Support for Netbooks was added in V3.27.
