Summary0000392: Consider "Single" window option instead of 4
DescriptionLFOM in the forum (03/22/2020) suggested going to a Single window option instead of the 4 separate windows. This may be possible by "rooting" the window per GG. It is something that can be looked into but of low priority. I do not think it would include the "tear off" option that might be expected though (because not written in QT?) The request for this is based on having a small screen with the end result of the title lines on each of the 4 windows taking up space - 4 times more than if you only had 1 window.

The rooting window version would have to be started from a window command line rather than an icon though.
TagsNo tags attached.

That screenshot is kind of interesting with the thinner title bars -- thanks for sharing!
We have done some things to provide a little more screen space. You might have read in the release notes, that now you can size the audio tracks separate from the video tracks + each patchbay for each track has a up/down toggle to change the track size.

I can not remember if I mentioned this before but you can go into Settings->Preferences, Appearance tab and set the "Layout Scale" to a smaller size so that the Cinelerra windows, icons, and characters are smaller but, of course, the title bars coming from the O/S are the same size as before (which is the problem anyway).

Screen shot of latest CinGG running on Pop!_OS 20.04 (Gnome + a GTK+ theme with thinner title bars) in 1280x800 resolution.
