I'm new to working with MB3D, and am having trouble with the size of the navigation window.  It's so large that I can't get to the buttons on the bottom.  Can't find a way to resize it.   Anybody else have this problem?

Sounds like your image proportion is too tall for your monitor.  I believe that the 3D navigator window follows the same proportion as the main one, but at a fixed width.   Also, I just tried a 1:1 square proportion, and sure enough... on my 1024x768 monitor, I can see the normal controls, but the extra control panel expands off the screen.  Sorry, but I think you have to go to like a 4:3 proportion, or get a new monitor.

The only other thing I can think of is that some graphics drivers or extra software has the ability to give you a larger virtual desktop  - so if you move your mouse to the bottom of the screen, it will scroll down.   Can't think of one right of hand though.

Good luck!  afro

Only time I see that is on very tall ones 3:4 or 1:2 aspects. What I've done in the past on that is reverse the width and Height settings (ie to 4:3 or 2:1) and rotate the image 90 degrees and work on it in that way and Rotate it back during Postwork. Gets pretty tricky with the lighting to get it right for a different orientation than the one your working with though, but it worked.

The navi height is limited automatically, but i forgot to include the windows taskbar... mine is always hidden by default.
Will change this in the next version.

Didn't help to change the size of the image, but hiding the taskbar worked.  I'd never done that, so didn't think of it.  Thanks!
