Bug Description


This issue can be reproduced on many netbooks that share the 1024*600 screen resolution.

when launching unity tweak tool, the main windows exceeds screen height (possibly 760 px of height), making bottom icon labels unreadable.

Possible workarounds:
* move down slightly the UTT window and - using X*2 workspaces - go to the below workspace to read icon labels.
* Alt+F7 to move up the window.

Though workarounds are quite inelegant, using a sizable window with scrollable icon zone should be more efficient for lower resolution screen users.

Yeah, we have planned resizable pane size and scrollbar for panes whose content exceeds the height of the resolution, so you won't have to move the window manually for a future version of Unity Tweak Tool.
