Default small transport bar

Hello

There's a lot of unused vertical space on the transport bar. It could be half the vertical size.
Isn't it ?

If you right-click on the Transport Bar and select "Dock transport in main menu" the Transport bar will undock and can be resized.

Cheers,

Malcolm.

Good point.
But if I resize it and redock it, there's still this unused space below the transport bar.

Not here there isn't. At least, when the docker is not showing. As it is, the taskbar is inclined to pop up when I'm trying to get at the transport controls - I wouldn't want them any lower.

Edit - just discovered that it fits very nicely below the docker when that's in the second monitor.

Actually perhaps now is the time to mention "DoubleDesktop" again. You can use that utility to create a second virtual desktop for a single monitor, and have the entire docker in it, enabling you to flip from one to the other (main window to docker) as required.

OK!
In fact I guess it's a bug.
If the Reaper window is maximised, the problem doesn't happen.
If the Reaper window is smaller than the screen, the problem remains.

yep, it's a graphics bug - sort of. The transport bar behaves weirdly in general when you change its width.

Docked:
If the REAPER window is wide enough, everything is cool.
Slightly narrower, the transport bar becomes two lines high instead of just one, for no discernable reason.
Even narrower, the BPM, marker, and time/measure settings migrate to the left, under the transport buttons, explaining the two-line height.

to observe, dock transport, restore REAPER window (not maximized), drag right edge of REAPER

Undocked:
If the transport bar is wide enough (VERY wide), everything is cool.
Slightly narrower, and the settings disappear, with no indication that they are now under the buttons and you have to make the bar window two units high to see them. I thought it was normal for undocked toolbars to stay large enough to show their controls.

to observe, undock transport bar, drag bottom right corner of transport bar

While tweaking the size like this, bad redraws were plentiful, though always fixed by covering with another app and then uncovering.

On my 1024x768 screen, REAPER when maximized shows this extra "space" below the transport when docked. It's just the threshold for re-organizing the two sets of buttons and resizing the space are off a bit.

Yep - I'm running 1152x864, and it works fine maximized, but happens at nearly full-screen when restored.
