SyncBackPro V9 - New UI Problem: Main Window is HUGE! Takes up too much screen real estate!

Post by JTB3 »

Hello, I just upgraded to V9 and I'm writing to complain about the new UI. It takes up WAY TOO MUCH Screen real estate space to show the same number of profiles (as compared to the prior version 8) ALMOST DOUBLE The HEIGHT + EXTRA WIDTH!

On my smaller laptop LCD, I now need to dramatically SCROLL the profile window whereas before all my profile fit easily in the main window!

Suggestions to Resolve this:
1) Please provide a compact mode option (that resembles the density/spacing of the Windows File Explorer), AND
2) Make the new giant Top/Bottom Buttons SMALLER (or at least provide an option for smaller buttons), AND
3) Allow the entire Top Tool/Button Bar to be pinned/hidden.

The present state of the new UI is such a disappointment to me, that I'm considering downgrading back to V8.
Is it possible to get a refund?

Thanks in advance for listening and your reply, -JT :(

Hi, we'll be releasing an update to V9 very soon that reduces the size of everything (buttons, windows, etc). Hopefully it will look about the same size as V8 on your laptop. Thanks.
