#21 Previews can larger than Screen

Interface (12)
Jonny A

I drew the preview larger than my screen (don't ask how or why). They are now so large, that I can see only a small part of one Preview. Since the handle for changing the size is in the right lower corner, I can not resize them to small.
Suggested Bugfix: Max Size of Icons should be smaller than window size.
Alternative Bugfix: Add Button for "Reset Preview Size".
Alternative Bugfix2: Add help, where in the registry the preview size is stored.

    Agreed, there should be a maximum size to which the results can be resized, so you cannot resize one larger than the width of the results area.

    To address your immediate problem, you can use the keyboard to resize the preview. Click anywhere on one of the results (so that it has the focus), then press Tab, and the preview should be outlined with a dotted focus rectangle. Then use the Left or Up arrow keys to shrink the size.

    For your information, preview size is not stored in the registry, but in the settings file. This can be found in: \Documents and Settings\<user name>\Local Settings\Application Data\AlbumArtDownloader\AlbumArt.exe_Url_<junk>\\user.config (or \Users\<user name>... etc on Vista). The name of the setting you want is ThumbSize, or you can just delete the file to have it reset everything to defaults.

    Thanks to your hint to the settings file I fixed it.
    Great - I really missed the prog.
