Gitk lower panel cannot resize

Gitk lower panel cannot resize

In gitk there are two panel, the top panel which display mostly the list of commits, and the bottom panel which shows changes in this commit. Somehow, since this week I cannot adjust the height of these two panels, like making one of them bigger/smaller. Any idea why?


Solution 1:

Maybe you don’t see thin resize widget? It’s between searchbars:

The specific spot highlighted

Try to change “Edit – Preferences – Use themed widgets” option and restart gitk.

Solution 2:

Just in case this was not a technical but a user issue, note that the resize line to grab is not where it should be. It’s not the window line that’s above “SHA1 ID:” but above the “Search” button and below the “next” and “prev” buttons. It’s extremely unintuitive.

Solution 3:

Hover very slowly next to where the Radio Buttons for Patch and Tree are and you will see the cursor change to the resize icon.
