Sizeable Window

Recommended Posts

Just a thought... it would be really great if the main Cura window were sizable. Running Cura 2.4.0 under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, I find that it is necessary to auto hide the top and bottom panels to be able to see all of the Cura window. If I don't hide those bars, then I am unable to see the [save to File] button, the object dimensions, the print time and the filament usage. If I were to be able to size the Cura window down a bit like I can every other program I run, I wouldn't have this trouble. And I really hate autohiding bars.

I had better be more specific. I am able to resize the window left to right, but not up and down.

Because otherwise things would not fit nicely. Fortunately the minimum size is fairly easy to alter:

* Inside the Cura folder, find /resources/themes/cura/theme.json.

* In that file, find "window_minimum_size".

* The numbers after that are the minimum size in pixels, divided by a dpi-related number. Change them to eg [70, 40].

* Restart Cura

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
