    Larger palette sizes?

    Is there any way to get a larger maximum palette size? Specifically for the layers palette? As is, I can only ever see 3 or 4 layers in the window when its dragged out to its max size.

    Extremely annoying =/

    Click and hold in a blank area of the Layers palette name bar, drag the Layers palette out of the docked group, then click and drag the lower right corner to make it as large as you want.

    Not all palettes can be made that much larger and for those that can't, even when they are made a little larger, the contents remain the same size (Mixer palette, for instance).

    On my 19" monitor set to 1280 x 1024 screen resolution, I can stretch the Layers palette longer to display a maximum of 20 Layers. It could display 40 Layers if I chose the No Thumbnail option (Layers palette menu) and settled for half of the Canvas showing at the bottom, enough to click and highlight.

    Here's a screen print with 20 Layers and the Small Thumbnail option:
