GUI height change in 6.2?

In Ardour 6.2 the GUI does not fit vertically anymore on my 1024x768 display when selecting ''Maximize editor space" with the previous (Ardour 5.12) GUI scaling, for example for a new session:

Now I need to reduce GUI scaling quite a bit further to make it usable in 6.2 as well, to the point the the text becomes hard to read.

Is that intentional? It seems that there is a lot of empty vertical space.

Try to detach the preferences pane. Menu > Window >Preferences > detach

That may be responsible increased height requirement, in particular if it’s below the main toolbar.

That works well, thanks.
