Please make it more usable on XGA screens. This could be done by allowing the font sizes to be configurable.

    +1: The reason this request is critical is that the average conference room projector is very low res, and yet that's exactly when we count on this tool the most. So, this issue is an impediment to keeping our standup meetings down to 15 minutes and it also impedes our Sprint planning meetings.

    My absolute biggest pain point here is that the task dialog box is way too big to be usable on low-res screens. The height of the task dialog needs to be cut down by a third, and the width could stand to be cut down by a quarter. In other words, please make the Detailed Description text-box half as high and half as wide.

    It is not a simple as just shrinking the detailed description field. The story and task dialogs use the same screen with some fields hidden or shown depending on the type being edited and the story has many fields which need to be displayed. I don't really want to redesign the UI to cater for XGA screens since it would be a lot of effort and people with larger screens would suffer because of it.

    As a compromise, I have shrunk the task/story dialog marginally and repositioned it so that by default it takes up most of the screen but is completely visible on XGA. All other dialogs have been repositioned in the same way so everything is clearly visible in XGA.

    Version 0.8 has moved the Project and Iteration summary panels into slide out drawers which are easy to fold away and gives people with XGA screens (and everyone else) much more horizontal space in the backlog view. There is not much I can do in the Wall view unless I scale the card sizes and text which make things very difficult to read in higher resolutions.
