I don't have this issue. Perhaps do you mean dlgManageFavorites? or is
it on Mac OS X?

dlgTrigger is smaller. The four checkboxes are now in a 2x2
wxFlexGridSizer. If we want to make it smaller once again, we need to
replace the wxRadioBox with a wxComboBox.

dlgSequence will need another tab, so we can reduce its size.

dlgView is smaller too because of the resizeable Properties tab.

The biggest one is now dlgSequence.

It does now. It took me five hours to get something working. Glad it's
finished :)

Make them work properly would be better. The status bar offers important
informations when a user deals with an unusual object (conversion for

It doesn't work well on Mac?

OK, will do.

Not sure if we really want this now. It's difficult to know what I
should commit. Obviously, the "remaining-to-be-fixed" should not :)

But can I commit the ctlSecurityPanel.cpp which takes care of the
Privileges tab without commiting dlgTable? dlgTable still needs a fix
but I don't know how the old dltTable will behave with the new
resizeable Privileges tab.

To do:
 * dlgFindReplace

Remains to be fixed:
 * dlgDatabase
 * dlgFunction
 * dlgLanguage
 * dlgTable
 * dlgType
