I create a small patch that cleans up the ui a small amount (at least for me).
It removes the frames from where I think the are unnecessary and moves the
up/down arrows under the "Task" controls. Over all I think it gives it a
Also, it fixes the bug in the modify > validate dialog not displaying all the
contents without manually resizing.

Thank you for that quite valuable work Michael !!
I still haven't tried your patch, but I'm sure I will use it (all or part of
it) at the next release.
Just a couple of questions:
What graphical environment are you using (kde, gnome etc) ?
What's your screen resolution and fonts DPI ??
Thank you again :)
I am using kde (4.6.2) on arch linux.
Screen resolution is 3200x1080 :) (1920x1080 + 1280+1024 twinview)
DPI is 96.
Please excuse my (small) delay but I just tried the changes you've made and
there's only one think to say:
"they're awesome !!"
That is how the gui will look at the next release :)
PS I used your "trick" for the validate dialog for some other dialogs too...
Glad you like them :)
I might do some more work on it after my exams, though it would be easier if a
public version control system is used if one isn't already (I would suggest
git). Sourceforge has the resources to set one up and would be make
contributing changes much easier.
Thank you :)
Until now, there is no real need for version control since the number of the
developers is the smallest it can get :)
In addition, there hasn't been many that contributed code changes.
I generally consider it good practice to not spend resources that are not
Wish you good luck with your exams Michael.
If you decide to work on LB after them, drop me a line first...
Well, it is something worth considering... I have found version control
invaluable in all my projects and can't imagine not using it now (even for
short lived projects) :)
Have always considered using a proper version system as a great way to save on
effort and resources rather then thinking it as a cost ^^
Remembers the countless times a "git revert ..." has saved him hours of trying to find a simple screw up
But anyway, its up to you... just offering my advise :) and hope to look at
the code in more detail when I get time.
