Hello! I am running a 15.6 laptop and the Gladiator plugin does not fit in it.

Their standalone version has a slider to get to the bottom part but I can't get that in my host.

Not sure if this is feasible or if anyone would know of a workaround?

I understand that its the devs that should consider having as resizable etc but some just don't..

Thanks!!

That might be host-dependant... AFAIK it should get a scrollbar at least in Reaper (don't own Gladiator so can't check). Of course, the plugin would need to send correct info about its GUI size.

I experience a similar issue. There are some vsti that dont quite fit on the screen in Mulab. For instance Synthmaster 2.9. Set at a gui size of default 140% is just a hair to tall because of the menu bar in Mulab. I cant access the bottom parameters and no way to scroll. In Reaper the same setting fills the screen with no need to scroll. The window header is the difference.

Please note that the VST editor's top control bar (the one added by MUX) is a necessary control bar.
What about setting SynthMaster's GUI size to a lower value so its GUI matches the screen?

Yeah, I understand the need for the bar. Not sure which piece of soft ware creates the scroll bar but it would be nice.
I could reduce Sm gui but then its hard to see. an option for 135% on SMs gui would also be cool.
Same exact issue with Tal Mod.
