A more comprehensive one would be required taking into logic and workflow to get it much smaller. 768 is really just  bit too narrow vertically to include desktop decorations like a menu bar and then expect an app to fit all the required settings in too.

Thanks for the insight Craig. As I have now worked out how to move a
dialog upwards off the top of the screen, my immediate problem is
solved. I can see there is a whole lot of information in that dialog so
reducing its vertical layout would be an issue. I'm not conversant with
the mechanism dialogs use and assumed it would be similar to a 'normal'
window where grabbing the top or bottom of the frame and shrinking it
vertically would result in the frame shrinking and a scroll bar
appearing at the edge. Just shows how dangerous it is to assume
anything.   "8-)

Kind regards,
