Multiple-Item Popup Lists
User has large number of items (usually Assemblies or Cost Items). When they click on the popup button in a clairvoyant field, it only shows 4 columns of items so they can't move to the next set of items (there should be 5 columns in Goldenseal accounting software).
This applies only to Goldenseal estimating software for Windows (the Mac version has a scrolling list in popups).
This seems to happen with people who have a large System font-- usually done by the manufacturer to cope with LCD monitors that have tiny pixels.
In version 3.0 of Goldenseal estimating software, we added some prefs items so users can control the number of menus that show for popups that have a ton of items. These are currently optional fields, but we'll add them for everyone if this problem becomes more common (so far only one user has reported it).
To add the optional fields:
To change the popup setup:
This problem may also be solved by changing the System font (the only option available for pre-3.0 Goldenseal).
To change the font for popup menus:
This is not a problem on the Macintosh since that uses a single scrolling list. We used to do the same thing in Windows but the scrolling was way too slow to be practical for >100 items.
NOTE-- We haven't heard of this problem recently, probably because screen sizes have increased and it's less likely there won't be room for all the popup menus.
