#4174 closed Bug report (wontfix)

Site Manager dropdown won't scroll on monitor with lower resolution than main monitor

Description

Simple bug really, possibly a limitation of wxWidgets.

I've noticed that the dropdown scrolls on my main monitor if the list becomes too large for the screen's height, but I have a second monitor with a lower resolution and the dropdown doesn't detect this lower resolution and compensate with the scroller.

If the list isn't big enough to scroll on my main monitor but it is too big for my secondary monitor then the list displays without any scrollers and goes off the bottom of the screen with no way to access the bottom items except by mousing over the bottom or top displayed items and then using the arrow keys and enter to select off-screen ones.

If the list it too big for my main monitor and thus too big for my smaller one, then the scrollers appear, but as before, the bottom scroller is off the screen, and I still have the problem.

I realise that this is something of an edge case, and I can temporarily fix it by reorganising my site manager to have fewer items in each folder, but I just thought I'd put this out there as it's definitely a bug (although as I said, probably a limitation of wxWidgets).

Looks like a limitation of wxWidgets or perhaps even Windows. I cannot get it to scroll regardless of display configuration.

You already mentioned the appropriate solution: Organize your sites in subdirectories.
