#1023 Options dialog does not properly resize, and uses tiny fonts


The options dialog does not properly resize. Here is a screenshot of the dialog on my 17" 1600x1200 screen:


I understand that this is a popup window that's not really meant to be resized. But why should it be limited to using just a small portion of the screen? At the very least, there's really no reason to have scrollbars here, when so much screen space is available. Also, the fonts could stand to be a lot bigger here, to make the dialog more readable.

    By the way, the above report was for keepass 2.19, mono version 2.10.5, running on amd64 gentoo linux, using the i3 tiling window manager.

    Mono handles all resizing and drawing of windows, not KeePass. Thus, this clearly is a Mono issue, not a KeePass one. Please report it to the Mono developers.

    On some systems, resizing seems to work acceptably. For example, here's a screenshot of a 144 DPI options dialog under Kubuntu 12.04:
    So, the issue seems to be dependent on the desktop / window manager.

    Thanks and best regards
