I use the MCS with my Netbook. Because the help menu has a large header and footer only on a small part of the display I can read the help instruction. Please have look at the pictures.
I looked in the HTML files and the header and footer are hard coded. I changed in one file but I would have to change it in every file.

Is it possible to change it in a easy way?

If not it would be nice if you can change it with the next update.

The HTML is generated by another program, not sure if there is a way to make those elements dependent on screen size.
As an alternative you can get the PDF versions of the manual at http://spectran-developer.net/ftp/doc/mcs-manual/

Thank you for the link. This helps a lot.

But I can't understand why should the footer depended on the screen size. The footer has a hight of 150 pix and, for my feeling, it is not necessary. In the help menu I don't need the terms & conditions etc.. If it much smaller it would help.

You allways need those information on every page, this is simply a matter of national and international law, sorry.

I would simply buy a new screen or laptop offering a standard screen size of MINIMUM 1280x1024 (better 1600x1280 or higher). Such screens or laptops cost allmost nothing and you can opperate much better with a usefull resolution.

A 1024x600 resultion is by far not usefull for any todays application...

OK. I understand.

Yes, my display is not large.
But the footer is larger than necessary to show the information. If you compare the header with the footer and what you see in it, the header has the correct size for the Aaronia logo. Would the footer has only 80pix hight there would be enough space for the terms & conditions and etc. And I would say the proportion would be better.

Anyway it is only a feedback.
