O.P. Dear Skin Devs... Skin Options Panel...
Dear Skin developers,

Please think of the netbook owners. I own a netbook and it is near impossible for me to use a skin options panel. My display is 1024 x 600. Something needs to be done to make the options panel more user friendly (for netbook owners).

Thanks muchly!
Love all around!

Hide and peek is like 300x200 or something :P
The default option panel seems to adjust to the content,
so few options means there shouldn't be a problem...

When I view the Metro options panel I cannot see the OK button. This is because when the window is open it is displayed as if the frame of the window is visible. Hard to explain without a screenshot.

Will post when I get home.

Agaeti's is 550x540 :3 [But I bet it has the same problem as Metro's...]

Now there is some massive panel redux trying to get out of my image files, but it's not being able to win the fight against fighting armies of tests, homeworks, congresses and turrets!

Nah I know what you're talking about. I'm working on the legit skin options panel, and that's the size I set it as :P

I think Plus! needs to display the linear panel inside the preferences window with a scroll bar or possibly allow a tabbed like interface to the preferences.
