Filezilla window too wide since update to version 3.46.3

#1 Post by HenryELenz » 2020-02-07 04:58

Because of the files I am editing, Filezilla worked best for me when I had the width of the Filezilla window at about a quarter of my screen size.

Even though Filezilla was running smoothly for me, I finally gave in and performed an update to version 3.46.3.

Now, I can no longer shrink the width down to a workable level -- it takes up well over a third of the screen width, making it awkward and cumbersome to continue the file editing I was doing.

I found a post about this issue viewtopic.php?f=1&t=51777&p=171258&hili ... ze#p171258 <-- the poster mentioned having width control issues when updating to version 3.46.0 but no solutions were offered.

I did check the settings under the edit tab in the toolbar but could find no information about changing the viewable window size.

Is there a way to shrink the vertical size of the window? It used to be possible to shrink it down to less than a quarter of the screen width and if that option is available, I would love to know how to do it.

Thanks.

This change is intentional. If resized too small FileZilla becomes unusable.

Sure, if you resize it too small but when it went to 1/4 of the width of my screen it was very useable. Opening it and the folders I was working on at the same time, made the work flow very smooth. Now that it takes up well over a third of the screen, I can't have everything visible like I did before and the constant toggling between screens has made it very cumbersome to use.

Can I roll back to the previoous version I had?
