The new UI apparently has a side effect on my (rather old) laptop that has a 1366x768 resolution: The "View Options" screen is literally too tall to fit. Specifically, even manually dragging the modal as far upward as possible wouldn't help, as the row containing "Preset Options" and the "Save" / "Save As" buttons would still be cut off due to running out of vertical resolution.

Would it be possible to allow the user to resize modals such as "View Options" and "Undo" (and display scrollbars for navigating through the inner content if the outer container is smaller in either or both dimensions)? This could also be useful if someone wants to run Foldit on one-half of the screen, for example. Alternatively, an option to adjust the font size of various UI elements might help.
