hi doug

Here is a workaround to try: hold down Alt while click-dragging with
left mouse button. Should work on most systems.

Thanks for the thought, Greg, but it doesn't work on my system (Fedora
25 / Gnome 3). I tried every combination of Alt, Ctrl and Shift to no
avail. Never mind, it is a small wrinkle that I'm sure will be fixed
in the full release.

on linux desktops that are "correctly" setup it's probably the windows
key (on even better systems it's the key with a penguin on it... but
those setups are very rare : - )

Hi Craig.

Resolution is 1366*768

All I need in the released version is a resizable dialog. The current
size is a show-stopper for me. I can resize other dialogs on my system,
so this problem is a puzzle. I will keep digging to see if it is
something odd about Fedora 25, but if it can be fixed from your end it
would be appreciated.
