Bug Description

I'm testing this new app. So far, excellent work! I love that it generates the QR code as you type.

But, in order to access to the bottom-most buttons, I had to Alt+drag the window. The window is too tall to be comfortably managed in a netbook (1024×600 pixels). The bottom-most buttons could be re-arranged in the primary toolbar at the top, or may be put at the side of the "canvas" (the QR code).

Excellent, thanks a lot for the feedback!

I will look into the best way to do this for the next release. I might
have to move them to the top or try to make the window smaller, as I'm
not sure they'd fit designwise on the side.

We will probably not have the time to focus on this bug in the foreseeable future, so I'm changing its priority to Wishlist, so that we can still keep track of it in case someone wants to fix it.

The good news is that the main focus of development is the touch branch, which will bring a version of Qreator that runs on phone, desktops and tablets and that adapts to the form factor, essentially fixing this bug.
