When I try to watch the combat results, I get a window which shows which units were involved, etc. But the window cuts off the bottom half of the display, so I don't see anything but the top handful of ground units or any of the air units. I can pause the display and scroll down the window, but I don't want to do that--I want the window to actually show all of the information during the playback. I don't see any way to resize the window, am I missing something?

At least a few more pixels, so you can read the last line of text!

Often a lot more than a few pixels is needed to see everything. Why display this info if no one can see it? Why not allow this window to be resizable?

1 or 2 seconds, really? Have you actually tried scrolling? The scroll bar is very difficult to select and move, it took me far too long to even try for every battle.

That's why I'm asking that we just be able to see all the info without scrolling...

+1!

The scroll bar is terrible, above all in the CR (and in the editor...)

But we are in the realm of the thousand clicks and scrolls...

You can change the amount of time that the display window is up through the preferences screen. The size of the display was created way back when monitors had lower screen pixels than today and just have never modified it since.

Yes, also I often cannot read the second heading, the air group name, even when I scroll down. I seem to recall this was the same in WitE1 or WitW a long time ago.
