Well, its an annoying problem that makes ZDL unusable, it opens up as a very small window, blocking importent parts of the program, I can't resize it or stretch it, its a stupid problem, but help?

Wait a week and the source will be out. Then someone can fix it.

Because I don't have Windows anymore.

What if you use the default Windows appearance? I think the big font you are using has something to do with it.

Oh right, I forgot, you went over to Linux.

Try tuning down the font. That could be a problem.

If that doesn't work you will have to wait for the source to be released so somebody else can fix it.

(Wait a minute, don't most of the programmers on here use Linux?)

It might be because Windows is set to Large Fonts mode, which globally sizes up the font size everywhere. That tends to screw around with applications that depend on the fonts to be smaller, so set yourself back to Small Fonts mode and then manually adjust the font sizes through the Appearance tab.

Note: In Windows XP, the settings aren't referred to as Small Fonts and large Fonts - they're changed to Small DPI (96) and Large DPI (120). Stick with Small DPI, regardless of your monitor's size. Applications tend to be designed around the assumption that your monitor is 96 DPI.
