How are you trying to set the scrollbar to vertical? Setting or dragging the SB rect to the desired dimensions should automatically change it’s orientation as soon as it's width is less than it's heigh, is this not working? Paul > On May 6, 2017, at 6:42 AM, Richmond Mathewson via

Tiemo, There’s nothing wrong with your logic, this all works fine on a Mac, LC8.1.4 (rc1), but from an earlier post I gather you are on Win 10 so this looks like there's a bug in the works, maybe a Linux user could test also. Have you tried any other versions of LC? HTH Paul > On 12 Apr
