The new search bar is over the toolbar icons

Recommended Posts

After this latest update, the search bar now covers most of my icons on the left. How do I position it back to the right side again??

Yes I have the same issue. I posted my question here :

Im using uTorrent on my 75" 4K TV in the lounge. In windows display settings 'Scale and layout' I have 225% set to make the screen readable. This issue was not present in the build before the latest.

You can try this change in properties. It may not help with the issue, but you might be able to use smaller font scaling since the fonts might be sharper...

Thanks Rafi, using Application makes the icons smaller and more crisp but too small for my 75" lounge TV. I have always used System which makes the icons larger but not as crisp. It was working perfectly the build before last. Now you cant drag the search bar out the way anymore. Whatever change they made it would be nice to have it reverted/made the same functionality as before.

Or... Make the application DPI aware and scale icons/text accordingly. Then I wouldnt have to change high DPI settings.

What is your monitor resolution?

May you show screenshot please?

Thank you.

Hello! My monitor resolution is 1920x1080.

I've also tried uninstall and reinstall uTorrent. Same result.

There goes the screenshot:

Thank you

Just curious here, are you (and some of the rest here) just don't want this search box  visible in the middle of the bar (or even not at all, since you don't use it), or is it more the fact that it can touch the buttons on the left more often now being closer?

Its is "more the fact that it can touch the buttons on the left more often now being closer?"

I find the search box helpful to filter my torrents at time.

First of all, rafi, the search bar is not just "visible in the middle of the bar", it´s stuck on the left, over the stop, up and down buttons, as shown in the captured image I posted on August, 30. Second, the fact is that the up and down buttons are now not visible all the time, as they were in previous versions of uTorrent. They are now hidden by the search box, so it makes more annoying (it takes more than one mouse click) to move up or down the torrents in the list. If the position of the search box really stays in the middle of the bar, as you said, no matter what screen resolution is used, I think it resolves the issue.

Why did uTorrent change the position of the search box, anyway?! The toolbar has been working fine until then...

Agreed.

1. The search box width (from memory) seems to be a little larger than before.
2. Previously, when you moved the mouse to the left side of the search box a drag icon appeared which let you move the search box towards the right.
3. I think it should be right aligned or give us back the option to drag it where we like.

And where is SergeyQA dissapeared too? He posted above once then nothing.

I have the exact same problem.  I even managed to remove the search bar completely and the UP /  DOWN buttons still remain hidden.  The problem is less of an issue if I stretch out (or maximize) my uTorrent window.  Unfortunately, i usually run uTorrent in windowed mode.  It seems like the search bar is taking precedence over the toolbar icons.

 

The OP is correct in stating that this was not an issue in the previous versions.

SergeyQA did respond to my thread back on Oct 3rd (I only just read it) ... "We are looking into that", that was 6 weeks ago, I wonder how long it will take to revert the UI back to how it was previously :)

May the UI is simply glued into the new location, stuck in there, and cannot be moved... ;)
