Win 10 / MS 3.0-dev, 29204d5

The minimum size for the Staff properties window is considerably bigger under 3.0-dev than it was under MS 2.2 .

MS 2.2: 16.4 x 12.8 cms.
MS 3-dev: 17.2 x 14.8cms.

Other size issues:

#276404: Format > Style window is too large.
#276503: Inspector: minimum width changes depending on element selected.


Comments

It may be a windows issue. On my windows 10 system the Staff Properties window is quite a bit larger than on all 2.x versions. Possibly related, are the icons in the palettes about 3 times as large as they are in version 2.3.2?

The increase in minimum height and width is due to the new properties added in 3.0-dev: "Hide when empty" and "Cutaway." Is some rearrangement possible to reduce this difference?

Reducing the height should be quite simple, if we accept much less space for the instrument names, which I think should be OK. jeg
