I've just started running AVR Studio 5 on my new laptop - a Lenovo X220 ThinkPad. The screen resolution is set to the maximum of 1366 x 768. I'm running Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack 1.

I'm finding that sometimes that when all the content doesn't fit in a window, either the vertical scroll bar is missing or doesn't allow me to scroll the entire contents.

This problem is illustrated in the 2 attached images. In the first snapshot, the properties window is incomplete. I've scrolled to the bottom but there is still some missing content.

In the second snapshot, I've removed the output window and now you can see the content at the bottom of the properties window.

It's been noted elsewhere that AS5 uses direct graphic access. There's an option somewhere to turn this off - it may fix any problems you have. The other commonly suggested "fix" is to upgrade the drivers for your graphics card. Maybe the laptop graphics driver is not up to date?

The graphic drivers on my laptop are the latest. I couldn't find a way to turn off direct graphic access.

Funny, I can create this problem on my desktop. I never saw it before because I have a large screen, resolution of 1680 x 1050 and I usually run AS5 in full screen mode. If I shrink it down, I see the problem on my desktop too.
