Can we please reduce the size of the transparency around menus and containers?

    If I put a container beside a menu in the enhanced client, I can't click on the container, because the transparency around the menu extends a good two centimetres, or more. There is no part of the menu in most of that transparent border, and the only reason I can think of for it is rushed coding or artwork.

    It is fairly annoying not being able to click on something because it falls inside that rather large tranparent border surrounding a menu, or a container. Now, I'm guessing seeing as I have noticed that transparent area seems to exist around legacy containers, that there might be some technical reason for that being there (packs have straps that are part of the image), but I can't think of any technical reason for the huge transparent border surrounding at least some of the menus.
     
  2. I agree - I've been asking for this since the first week of the beta.

    There's a mod or two out there that trims the borders of the backpack, and a couple other gumps. I'm hoping that they will also trim the rest of these gumps because it's rather annoying. Modders, please?

    Modder's cannot change the invisible window size of the "legacy" looking gumps that the Devs created. Those gumps appear to be hard coded in C++ so we can't touch them. :(

    This has been in the bug list for more than half a year now.

    We should be able to shove gumps off to the side of the screen, too. I'm referring to the crafting menu mainly but I think a few others won't overlap the window/screen edge either.

    eg: It's very handy to be able to push the crafting gump up and out of the way and have just the "make last" button showing while chopping wood and making shafts of the plain lumber.

    This doesn't affect me personally now I have widescreens but it's a step backward from the Classic Client's function if you don't have the room.
