Horizontal scrollbars obstrusive

Postby canciller » Fri Jun 10, 2016 5:51 am

Hi dear Inkscape team.

There is a "behavior" in the scrollbars at the bottom of the screen/canvas (see image attached).

It would be nice if the scrollbars were fixed or unobstrusive since "on mouse over" is very anoying to pick a color.

I'm using Inkscape 0.91, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Thanks a lot and have a nice day.

Hide them until you need them. In any case middle mouse will drag your canvas so you never really need the scrollbars .. Ctrl-shift-R I think is default shortcut, but look in the menu to be sure.
Your mind is what you think it is.

I think this may be related to Unity overlay scrollbars.

Here are suggestions about how to remove those unwieldy things:

Thank you very much both druban and Moini for your quick responses.

I'll hide the scrollbars for now and then look Moini's suggestion.

Peace!
