Re: Information Area taking over worksheet


Thanks for this. 

As you suggest, and as noted in paragraph 3 below, I've been manually
adjusting the size of the box. What then seems to happen while I'm
working, is that, as I'm scrolling through my tabs using the right
arrow that is to the left of the handle you mention, the box suddenly
reverts to its previous size and covers up a whole lot of the tabs.

As far as I can see it is random behaviour and not connected to
any particular action on my part (except for the use of the right arrow

Gnumeric has started a very annoying habit of opening up a box to
the left of the Information Area (bottom right corner of the
display) in width so that the width of the display of tab names is
much reduced. This results in only being able to see a small number
of the sheet tab names instead of a full-width display showing a
larger number of sheet tab names. I'm not sure what this box is
called or what is it's function.

Now I'm sure this didn't use to happen, and when I opened one of my
sheets with lots of tabs I could see all (or very many) of the sheet
tab names in almost the full-width of the display after opening the
sheet. As far as I recall this spacing remained static, and there
was no attempt by the box left of the Information Area to hijack
the space. Perhaps there was no such box?

Now when I open a sheet I seem to get a fairly normal sized
Information Area, an empty box to the left of the IA taking up
about 2/3 of the display width, and a small area to the left of
that with just a couple of the tab names shown. There is a handle
left of the empty box which allows me to minimise its width and
display more tab names. Fine, but then while I'm working this rogue
box once again widens and closes down the tab names so that I have
to keep going through the process of reducing the box width. 

Am I the only one suffering from this infuriating behaviour or is
it an aggravation to others also? Am I missing something obvious
which would allow me to control this rude box? What is the box for?
Can I dispense with it?

Help, please.
