750px wide gui... i'd like to change this
« on: October 11, 2010, 08:12:41 PM »
I love the clean and uncluttered askozia gui but watched on a even not too current monitor looks like a stamp on an envelope...

I would give him a little face lift but since it's not my child I wish that others tell me what you think, especially the father... Michael. ;D

Step 1: center the whole page.
Step 2: widen the left column, so the menu item don't wraps anymore using some verbose languages (like Italian...)
Step 3: let the right column expands freely in order to take rest of the screen.
Step 4: align the dev panel to the main interface.

Because all that requires very little modifications I done it, look at the attached screenshot to see the differences.
Michael is certainly involved in much more important things... @Michael, say yes and I'll commit soon. ;)

In general, I totally agree with your proposed changes. Going from a fixed to more elastic layout would be a nice addition. However, I'd prefer the columns be widened only if necessary. Arbitrarily expanding them would make less verbose languages look lonely in that large space.

My tweaks on your suggestions:
 - force the LI elements in the left column menu to not wrap
 - enforce the existing widths as a minimum width for both columns
 - enforce an absolute maximum width in both columns so things do not get ridiculously wide

Very nice suggestion, Giovanni. Thanks as always for your time. I've been completely busy with other stuff here to pay much attention to the forums.

Ok, most of your suggestions already considered and i totally agree that widening to 90% on a 1800 px screen looks ridicolous.
Will be tuned up especially for LI elements to keep the needed space without wrapping.

Done, a bit late thanks to a big effort required to get a decent rendering in IE.
