No

The operational boxes labelled "Accept", " Cancel", "OK" " whatever should be there " can not be used because the page extends beyond the usable screen size. No manipulation seems to change this.
Running Windows 7, IE9, Password safe 3.27 all Microsoft patches/updates installed as of 11.18.11.
Temporary workaround: (1) change screen resolution, (2)change page orientation to landscape, (3) "Save", " Accept" etc as needed... bottom of page can now be read. (4) close changes, (5) reset resolution. (6) use changes as Edited (7) Pray...it all worked.

    Hi,

    What are the screen dimensions where this happens?

    when resolution is set to 1024 x 768 ( the recommended size) for Windows 7, and text size is =100% the problem is solved. BUT, all the text in the Note box, e.g., is so small it can harly be read.

    I guess this constitutes ," CLOSED". Note, it stil means re-setting the resolution
    twice from start to finish . What am I missing ? THANKS to ronys for the clue. ,/ Dick
    " CLOSED".

    This shouldn't close this. PasswordSafe should take into account the text magnification when determining whether to use the "long & tall" dialogs vs. the "short & wide" ones.

    Hi,

    1024x768 is indeed very common, and PasswordSafe works fine with that. What is your actual screen size? I think the Notes font is readable with a 15" monitor.

    More interesting for me: what resolution are you using that cause the problem?

    Thanks again for keeping this alive. Monitor is AOC FT720 "17inch CRT color", 16" diagonal, 1280 x 1024 from spec sheet..

    That's odd. I've used a similar size & resolution with no problem.
    Could you please provide a screenshot illustrating the problem?
    - Make sure that no sensitive information is displayed - you might want to create a 'dummy' entry.
    - You can attach the screenshot to this bug report by clicking on 'Add a file' at the bottom of this page.

    Resolution at the time of problem was most likely : 1024 x 768 , text size = 125%. ;currently, note that changing text size to 100 % makes bottom of Edit Entry page accessible, BUT with very smal text in Notes. . Hope this answers all questions.
    Thanks again for your continued interest.

    As I said earlier, PasswordSafe needs to make the decision on which version to display based on both the resolution (in this case 1024 x 768) and the text size if greater or less than 100% (in this case 125%).

    Note: if the text size is too big then even the short & wide mode will not help.

    Alternatively, it could allow the use to force it to use a particular mode (tall & long or short & wide).

    Or it could do both.
