At 1024x600 on my netbook, some of the buttons on the Orders Panel are hidden behind the bottom blue "frame". That is, the top level of buttons (set retreat point, set urgency, etc.) are above the frame, but if you click "set combat stance", for example, the buttons for the various stances are hidden below/behind the bottom frame. You can still click them if you position your mouse cursor very carefully between the bottom of the frame edge and the bottom edge of the screen, but the buttons are almost impossible to read.
Basically, the order panel is positioned just slightly too low at this resolution. Can this be user configured in some way?
