Hi Alex,

Can you tell me what resolution you have set your monitor to and what is your monitor size?

Sometimes a simple adjustment here will help many of these issues.

No problem Alex.

reset your monitor to 1280 x 768 and see what it looks like. There are size settings in between but you will see ball park appearance and useability by doing this.

You change it with the windows control panel. You don't need to do anything physically to the monitor at all.

Looks fine when I look on IE,Firefox,opera and Chrome... and no side scroll.Another thing I think that gets forgotten is if you have changed the browser size beyond 100% you will not get an accurate example of your site.

basically you go into the control panel (or equivalent if you're using Vista) select the Dis[lay. Look for settings. Then I think you simply slide the indicator slowly to the Right until the numbers show 1280 x 768.

I think it will display immediately and you will get an opportunity to confirm the new setting. There is no harm done by playing with these settings. I've got your original settings written here. Easy to reset again.

OK. You would need to redistribute the icons . Did you check the settings that you moved it to?

Were you able to read the text under the icons?

Your welcome.

That was the shotgun approach Alex.

Some monitors need to be shut down and started again to be true. Others you need to also adjust the DPI of the dots on the screen when you alter the res.

If you're running games on your PC sometimes they're optimised for 256 Colour. Often the user is unaware because the "shop" asked some questions and set it up to what they thought would suit you.

But it's not a bug of the Yola system it's simply a setting locally.
