Moving, repositioning or resizing Station's window is difficult / top bar is invisible and too thin / grabbable area is small

(Josh Lucas) #1

When using Mac applications, I commonly double click the top bar to resize the window to fit my screen.

I also use the top bar to grab the window and reposition it.

Is there a different way to perform these actions that are not intuitive to me?

I also find this a problem. Finding some part of the UI to grab to move my window is very difficult. I don’t find an answer of “it’s there, just really thin” that helpful. I think it should be bigger and visually obvious.

I can’t grab anywhere to move the window around

As a user I want to click on the top part of the window so that I can move the window around on my big monitor

there’s no where to click right now so I am stuck with the window where it appears
When I try to click it always lands on a button

    The issue I’m facing is …

I can’t click and move it around on my screen. Ex. When I need to see something behind it or move it over a little bit, it feels like Station is glued to where it is on my screen. I have to shut it down or not use it. And I really like using it.

Same here. Moving the window is very frustrating and ruins the app for me. Slack has a similar layout, but the whole top is a drag target.


Also finding this a major source of frustration. I’m having to resize the app window using the corner left and right handles to resize and shove the window around.
