Not sure we should be concerned about this as it is unlikely you will have more than three colors defined. But on the 1366 x768 laptop screen the bottom of the GUI is cut off at about the start of the fourth color. I had defined some additional colors in one conky. With the default set I do not think more than three colors plus default are defined. The window can be resized horizontally but not vertically.

Having said all that it is not an issue in my view.

No, there are a couple. But I can resize it vertically as long as the bottom is not at the edge of the screen.

The GUI is now pretty long, and we may want to consider changing the layout next time around.

BTW: the backup file after changes still has dots, so CM can't open it. Needs to read like this:

Than I am not sure why I cannot resize vertically under any conditions. I must be missing something.

You are right, it does something like this: 17.11.16_10:11:55
Oh well, I guess I have to take care of idiotic decision of other people... why would that not work?

That works--all looks good to go.

Thanks.
