Tools Window Title


Recommended Posts

I just saw a post here that contained a screenshot of paint.net 4.3.10, with a Tools window title that actually said "Tools".

For years now, all I've gotten is a miserable "T.." for a title. The online documentation shows a Tools window title

of "To...". Just what is the secret of obtaining a non-truncated title up there? Why does that window have to be so darn

skinny?

It's wide enough for two columns of icons ;)

I'd like to be able to tell Windows to draw the stupidly large "X" button smaller, but I'm not sure that's possible.

 

Otherwise, solving this would require custom drawing of the non-client region (the "window chrome"). And that's a complicated, dangerous adventure. The main window does this and it's been a massive hassle over the years. Or I could have the window be declared as not having a frame at all, which would be easier, but it would be tricky to get things to look and act correctly (esp. any animations). So it's just not high on the priority list of things when evaluating bang-for-buck.
