I hope so that i am on right place to report a bug/feature... Very Happy

WinSCP is one of most perfect designed and usefull program i ever seen, but there is one option that need to be upgradet. The "WinSCP Login" window needs to be resizable because it's not functional when somebody have long and wide list of saved sessions, example:

Any idea what to do with other tabs when Login dialog would be resizable?

How about that: <invalid link removed>
Other tabs can have inner box size as before...
How do You think?

I'm using this program day by day for meny years and i really feel inconvenience of this "not resizable" window.

BTW: This program is really good job. For me is almost perfect, it simply have exactly what i need.

Thanks. Well, that's the obvious solution. Easy to do, but I do not like it.

My idea is to split the Login dialog to two. The basic one with just site/sesssion tree and basic inputs like hostname, username, password. This one would be resizable. And then separate (fixed) dialog for advanced options. This would have other advantages, not just the possibility to resize it.

Really nice idea, but how about that making resizable in simplest way as fast as is possible and that You designed now in further future?
I think that this "not resizable dialog" distract meny people.
