Would it be possible to reduce the width of the home button on the lower left of the selection interface so that more of the new buttons can be shown on lower resolution screens?

If you have bands set on a design puzzle it is necessary to resize the screen to see the new buttons on the right. Even on a standard puzzle they are off screen. Especially the disable / enable key which zips to be the last button at the end.
Making the green home button narrower would be a quick partial fix. The width of the cookbook, view etc buttons doesn't matter as they are toggles, and I know the hot keys :D

I know the buttons have hot keys but as they are new and may only become available with the correct selection it helps to be able to see the active options and confirm the status.

Pls also put the buttons closer together, and/or make it 2 rows if there are more than 8.

Any response to this please. One spends a considerable amount of time adjusting screen sizes just to fit the vast number of huge horizontals buttons across the screen.

Please make the buttons disappear when "Hide GUI" is checked in View Options, and when a recipe is running; this might save some computational load?

You need to see at a minimum, the delete all bands and disable all bands buttons when running recipes, problem is they jump about for some reason.

this issue has been fed back b4 - just an example of why many now no longer bother to feed back. Shame - but true :(

Can you still pinpoint when you realized the futility of our endeavours to provide useful feedback? I don't think I can.

I know this is a problem. The GUI code for the selection interface isn't set up very well, and is actually quite hard to change. I need to redesign the interface to allow it to scale better, but I'm the only dev working on the main game at the moment, and all of my time is taken up by things like fixing bugs and implementing what we need for CASP. I'll get to it eventually.

Understood. Thanks for letting us know jflat, the new contact map is great.
