"IDE Settings > Editor" - window too big

Hi,

On Windows 2000 with a screen resolution of 1024x768 and the default Windows appearance, the "IDE Settings > Editor" doesn't fit on the screen, so you can't see the "OK", "Apply", "Cancel", or "Help" buttons.

The dialogue is quite detailed, maybe it needs broken down into smaller elements.

I'm using build 3370.

On a related note... I'm on WinXP with dual 1600x1200 screens, running 3370.
When selecting 'Debug" settings, the settings dialog will sometimes jump
to 1200 pixels high (causing the bottom to hide behind the task bar), and
move the dialog to the center of screen #1. Sometimes it works fine, but
I can usually reproduce the problem by selecting something other than the
"Debug" settings, switching to default view then back to classic, then selecting
the "Debug" settings again.

I already complained about that, tho times I guess. It is
too large, it is autoresizing, and autocentering. Yuck.

This is very frutrating cause no settings from the default can be taken
in those dialogs that have such a problem.

Or a scroll bar for the content, so that the buttons are always visible.

This is fixed on build 3386, and the new "IDE Settings" > "Editor" window is quite well laid-out (IMHO). One more tweak: better vertical alignment of multi-line checkbox labels ?

Unfortunately, the "Welcome" screen when you start Irida doesn't fit into the window in a 1024 * 768 screen... so that's sort of a regression...

Just wanted to thank you at JetBrains for the effort you've put into rethinking this part of the settings dialog. It's much more ergonomic now, and I appreciate your efforts.

I get this all the time - really frustrating for the window to suddenly resize so the bottom is below the task bar.

I get this on a single 1280x1024 screen though and haven't been able to reproduce it reliably enough. It still occurs in 3415.
