You've got good timing. I've started hacking in dynamic UI support in the trunk,
and one of the three "tasks" I started with is "widescreen". Things
much a work in progress, but if you can get a build from the recent sources you
should already be able to get a good improvement on the usability.
I'm at linux.conf.au giving a talk on the development, but I've not quite gotten
the screenshots for how that is looking done. Once some are set, I'll link to
them so you can check it out.
Thanks for the info, ill take a look at getting the latest build for
inkscape, and have a play. Would be great to see more of the design
screen as im sure lots of users would agree.
also as a sideline, will the user workspace be able to export settings,
so i could set up on another computer? I also use vista with a 17"
widescreen but would love to have the same design environment if
possible? And have a lil 12" ibook, OSX 10.4.11 PPC 1.2ghz, but assume
the development of this particular branch is no longer being mass
developed? As not seen a build on the site etc (same as gimp last stable
is 2.6.6), but its ok, i still love my lil ibook.
Look forward to playin once i update etc,
