Under Wndows, on a HD screen, the scrolled list of tables in the 'Browse data' tab is streched horizontally across the screen and becomes uncomfortably wide. It would be nice if its size could be adjusted to the size of the largest table name.
Vertically, the list shows only 10 entries whereas there is plenty of place to display a much longer list. My 23 tables could easily fit in one list (they do in the Database structure tab).

Hmmm, trying to visualise that. Would you be ok to add a screenshot in here? 😄

In my previous mail I sent a screenshot of about half the screen. The
full screen is below, and you can see the problem of navigating the
scrolled list...

Ahhh. GitHub doesn't attach images sent via email. You need to add them using the web based user interface. 😦

Sorry for the extra hassle. 😇

Hi Justin,

DB Browser does not display records containing accented charaters. Is
this the normal behavior? What needs to be done to display such records?

I switched the browser language to French, but this does not modify the
operation of DB Browser.

Regards,
Raanan

@raananb Hmmm, that's not good. It's supposed to display all of the records.

As a thought, what happens if you try the latest nightly build? Does it work there? 😄

@raananb With the problem displaying accented characters, do you have time to try our latest released version (3.8.0)? It would be useful for us to know if that problem is still happening. 😄

Hi Justin,

The accented words problem went away with 3.8.0.

The width of the 'Browse data' menu is still too large.

A request: include an option to 'Open the last opened base automatically'.

Regards,

Raanan

Thanks Raanan. 😄

Yeah, we haven't done't anything with the width of that drop down in the Browse Data tab yet. But we did fix a bug related to character display, which is why I asked. 😉

Your idea for adding an option to automatically open the last opened database sounds good. Made a new Issue for it here, so we can keep track of it. (We like to keep each problem/enhancement/etc in it's own issue, for better tracking.) 😁

@raananb, we finally managed to add a sensible maximum for the browsed table combobox. Could you try with tomorrow's nightly and confirm that it's working as expected for you?
