B6.5.0.701 - It's hard to tell that some Preferences screens include content you have to scroll to find

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

The new Preferences window in b6.5.0 feel much more Mac-native, but some of the tabs require scrolling to see all their content, and that fact is not immediately clear. There are no scrollbars to indicate additional content "below the fold" (unless you just happen to start scrolling, then they appear), and scrolling in stand-alone Preference windows is not normal behavior for Mac apps. Normal behavior would be either...

  1. The Preferences window defaults to the size and shape it needs to accommodate all the content on the largest tab
  2. The Preferences window redraws its size and shape to show all the content of whichever tab you've clicked

Most Mac apps go with #2, including System Preferences.
