Error description

  • After resizing the Options window certain text gets cut short
    and in this case the "Authenticate" Part seems to have
    overlapping tables which removes most text.??As the Options
    window will always reopen based on the last size, a user might
    miss the use of a setting.??It is expected that we either do a
    realignment of the text after the resize, or prevent the user
    from resizing to a smaller size then we require to render the
    text.??This problem is more visible if COI is loaded in another
    language like German, as the text is longer and more is cut off.
