Buttons too far right on adding tracks dialogue

Post by stutes »

The buttons for the dialogue box that appears for adding tracks to the library are too far to the right. So much so that I can't see what they say.

Andy,

I don't observe this behaviour. Can you clarify:
1) Version/Build of Songs-DB
2) OS used
3) Confirm that you are talking about File|Add Tracks to the Library
4) Describe whether the problem is that:
i) The dialog itself appears so far to the right that portions of it are off the screen
ii) The dialog is centered, but the buttons within the dialog ('Advanced', 'Ok', 'Cancel') somehow don't appear on the dialog

Thanks for your help!

Andy confirmed that:
-Version/Build of Songs-DB: 1.4/1.506
-OS used: Window XP
-Click File|Add Tracks to the Library
-->The dialog appears centered, but the buttons within the dialog ('Advanced', 'Ok', 'Cancel') appear near the right edge of the dialog (and as such are partially hidden because the window dialog isn't wide enough to contain them).

Has anyone else observed this problem?

I have this problem with the add tracks buttons being too far right also. I use windows 98 and I think I'm using large fonts to make things more readable on my TV.

I still haven't been able to replicate this, but a few people have experienced the problem.

Can you shed any more light on some of your system settings?
-Screen resolution
-Control Panel/Display/Appearance
-Control Panel/Display/Settings/Advanced/General/DPI settings

thx.
Tim

Rusty,
I was able to modulate the problem by switching between small and large fonts in the control panel/display/settings/advanced/general dialog box.
When I chose small fonts, the add tracks buttons were fine. When I chose large fonts (125% 120dpi) the buttons were barely visible on the right side of the add tracks dialog box. When I chose custom font size of 150%, the buttons were not showing at all in the add tracks dialog. That's a shame because I liked the way the 150% font looked on my TV.
I'm using windows 98SE.
Hope this helps you reproduce the issue.

Rusty,
I have the other info you asked for:
Screen area is 800x600
True color x32bit
control panel/display/appearance scheme windows standard (large)

I changed the scheme back to windows standard and it didn't modulate the problem. I didn't try any other screen areas though.

Songs-DB beta version 1.4 (Build: 1.519)
Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 1
and display settings
1024x768,
colour highest (32 bits)
120 dpi.

Selecting a CD
File -> Add Tracks to the Library...
or
File -> Retrieve Moved Tracks...
The buttons are at the extreme right of the window and only for 1/4 visible.

As mentioned above with display settings 96 dpi it is allright.

I have that problem too when adding playlists or adding tracks at home. (I am at work now and can't reproduce it on my Win2000 machine, but will add the exact process to get to that window tonight.)

My home computer is Windows XP SP1 running a screen resolution of 1600 x 1200 with the Large Fonts.
