first of all, thanx a lot for your great work you did with ardour2, I really enjoy working with it.
But since I run a second screen in a twinview-mode I can´t rezize Ardour2 to fit in one of my screens.
I have allready tried to change the font size of “black_mackie_menue_bar” to sans 7. Now I can undock the toolbar and resize the myin window to fit.
Unfortunately the toolbar is still too big. It seems there are 1280 px nessesary
Not possible for me… does anybody has an idea to solve this problem?
I´m glad about any help thanks
Ah yes and one last question… is it allowed to make a german translation of the ardour manual and to publish that on my website with a link to this site. (I would give the translation to you too of course, if you want it then - when I have finished my work…)
I have the same problem, it’s already on the tracker. I found a workaround:
- Open the session.
- If the window is maximized, restore it.
- If both screens are in use, move it onto the smaller screen.
- hide some tracks until you can resize it to fit the screen.
- Save and close the session.
- Reload the session, maximize the window.
Natürlich darfst du die Anleitung übersetzen (ist ja GPL), einige deutsche User werden sich freuen
Thanks for your fast answer 404 not found
That really helps me a lot.
And of course I know that it´s released under the GPL, but in my opinion it´s “more friendly” to ask in spite of that.
I hope my translation will help the one or other who´s not that good in english. Most musicians I know prefer it to start right know, and not first to make a translation of the manual
anyway… ardour rocks!!!
By the way, selbst Musiker oder (wie ich) das Mädel für den technischen Krams ?

Hello Please help window not rezsizeable to 1024 pixel in
lenovo thinkpad w500
work very difficult
For Ardour5: Try to detach some window Preferences, Editor and/or Mixer. (Menu > Window > … > detach)
It could be that the “Preferences” pane may require more than 1024px (depending on desktop font-size), when it is attached to the main window.
Also check Preferences >Appearance > GUI+Font scaling. Just making everything a bit smaller may help.
