Inspector - resizable or not?

Matthias Rebbe via use-livecode
Sometimes the Inspector is resizable.  Other times it's really small and
I have to scroll around.

Is there a preference setting for this?  Is it a known bug?  Unknown bug?

Hi Richard,

This is probably a bug. We were discussing that with Mark Wieder in this
report: http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=19880

If you are on Ubuntu and have found a reproducible recipe please add it to
the report :)

Best,
Panos

Yes, please do. Panos can't replicate the problem. I *think* I have it
narrowed down to the resize routines in the behavior script, but I
haven't had time yet to delve any deeper.

I *did* find that narrowing the width down to the minimum and then
resizing works better than not, and that seems like a clue.

Re: Inspector - resizable or not?

If by "Inspector" you mean what I think of as the "Properties Palette"
on Xubuntu 17.10 I always (8.1.9) get a fairly "normal" thing when I
first open it.

I can increase the WIDTH of the Inspector, but I cannot increase its HEIGHT.

I would suppose (?) a "happy little work around" might be to have a
startup script that goes
something like this:

set the width of stack "revInspectorTemplate" to 300
set the width of stack "revInspectorTemplate" to 500

HOWEVER: having just tried that, it doesn't seem to work.

Doing this:

set the width of stack "revInspector" to 300
set the width of stack "revInspector" to 500

while resizing the stack "revInspector" doesn't affect the Properties
palette.

Where am I getting things wrong?

Richmond.

@Richmond

The ability to resize the property inspector vertically was introduced in
LC 9 DP-7:

Aha. Thanks.

I wonder why it was restricted in the first place.

Richmond.
