I'm using the latest version of Ardour on a desktop box with 1024x768 resolution. Ardour overlaps the screen horizontally. Is there anything I can do about this?

@2handband: in Preferences, change the font scaling. We don't have control over the *actual* font sizes on various linux distributions, and the choices we make work on some distributions and not on others.

Tried that. The fonts get really tiny, but the window size doesn't change. I'm using Slackware, BTW.

@2handband: a before & after screenshot would help. you should also specify what you consider the "latest Ardour" to be ....

Hi fkaluza,

What Paul said:

Window -> Preferences -> Misc -> Font scaling.

Decrease 10 points or so. 90 could do the trick.

Close ardour and open it again.
