Description mno 2005-05-20 10:59:14 UTC

Those sliding windows are great improvement over version 3.6 of netbeans, but
sometimes I get angry as I try to scroll and click the scroll bar, but it
istead tries to resize the window. It has to do with the area of where the
scrolling and where the resizing takes place. I would suggest that the scrolling
space schould extend bit to the rigth onto allmost the whole scrollbar, and
resizing starts only at the very edge of the scrollbar area, and extends a
little bit outside of the window. The mouse pointer gets changed anyway, and
is not so often used as compared to scrolling (at least for big projects) so I
believe this resizing area could be a little bit narrower.

Please see the attached pictures, the surrounding red lines should be on the
same position for both pictures, I just drawed them too sloppy, but the middle
border red line is what I intended to show.
