Resizing Windows

The Beta 2 rocks! I have been using it now as my primary desktop since it was released on my Fedora Core 5 machine. The only thing I can't get used to is that you can't resize windows from the top using mouse..
Is there a way to make windows resizeble from the top?

Re: Resizing Windows

It sounds like the theme you are using is not displaying the top-left/top-right xpm file that make up the theme, and are the bit you grab the resize. What theme are you using?

Re: Resizing Windows

I cannot resize Windows from the top either. I'm using the Glider theme. Changing themese, even to the Xfce* themese, does not allow me to resize Windows.

I'm using Xfce 4.4 Beta 1.

Re: Resizing Windows

i tried different borders, still the resizing from the top is not possible.
Is this supposed to be that way? I can resize from the top right and left  corners though, but not streight from top.

You're right, I was thinking that you meant that you could not resize form the top corners :oops:
the middle of the titlebar is normally used for moving the window so resizeis not used for the top

Re: Resizing Windows

There are other ways to resize a window, 1) the mouse by holding Alt+Button 3 (right click), 2) the keyboard where the default keybinding is Shift+Alt+Arrows (up/left/down/right).
I am also used to move a window with the mouse, Alt+Button 1, and the keyboard, Shift+Alt+Ctrl+Arrows smile

Re: Resizing Windows

Thanks for suggestion, I have been moving windows using ALT+ left clik, but did not know about ALT + Righ Click...
So this solves the problem for me, however, I am wondering why windows can't be resized streight from top? I sounds to me no natural that windows should be resizble from all sides.
