Description Paul Read 2014-09-02 10:09:55 UTC
Sometimes I wish to run two Xamarin Studios, and sometimes I wish to view both of them together.  Yet an artificial minimum width of the tool means there is an annoying over-lap when running both side by side

Very handy if minimum width could be smaller say 1920 / 2 = 960 pixels

This is still an issue (in 5.5.4) 

I fail to see why the minimum width needs to be set at an arbitrary 1000 pixels wide.  

Let the user decide

This was fixed in https://github.com/mono/monodevelop/commit/0bfee7fe652b5d07054e8b71059f69a973f09ed1

5.7 still has a minimum width restriction so pressing Windows key and arrow key does not set XS to half the screen width like most other tools

When will the fix be in the public release please?

I'll try to include it in the next service release, which should be available in about 3 weeks.

I have checked this issue using XS 5.8.773 on monitor resolution 1920x1080 and this issue is working fine as shown in screencast : http://screencast.com/t/8ERqInMJ8lwl

Hence closing this issue.
Comment 7 Mohit Kheterpal 2015-02-20 06:20:27 UTC
This issue is also working fine with Service release 2 i.e. XS , as shown in screencast : http://screencast.com/t/CslZhEuJv
