In the previous version we could change to higher resolutions than our screen, even if the window was bigger ... Is not it possible now? Why?

Hi Marcos,


I'm pretty sure you couldn't set the window larger than the maximum allowed by your operating system and there is no chrome extension that could do that! :)

The old version just resized it as large as it could and silently fail, without letting you know that it couldn't, in fact, resize it to the dimensions specified by the selected preset! There is no extension that can resize the browser window more than you can do yourself by dragging by the window's edges.

I'm sorry if you relied on that broken behavior, but that has been the source of many complaints and issues along the years and just had to be removed.


So, my advice to you is to revise your presets and set proper values that can actually fit your screen. You can do that by manually resizing the window to the desired dimension and the add a new preset and click on the "use current" link when entering the dimensions.



Best Regards,


Ionuț
