Sure, but UserBase can help in the meantime by making public what is already
available to us. If you have other ideas of currently available tricks that
will help, please send them to me. I'll get something started on this topic
BTW, while you are thinking on those lines, it's quite hard to get the panel
with calendar and resource definitions to go fairly small - it seems to say
'so far and no further, or I'll close altogether'. This is is almost-full-
screen size (so I can pick up on problems showing in gkrellm). The section
panel and this resource panel take up approximately half of the space. The
problem appears to be that the character size for the resource panel cannot be
forced to a smaller size. If you want a screenshot I'll happily send it to
