It would be very helpful if there was a way to expand the lessons window without also increasing the font size.

At the moment, we are limited to a maximum of 15 entries viewed at a time. Having the ability to maximize the window, or at least be able to view a week's worth of entries at a time would seem like less of a waste of available space.

I know that the current suggestion is to change the screen resolution. I find this suggestion to be impractical for any computer that is capable of multitasking; nor does changing the resolution increase the quantity of entries viewed.

Are there any plans for improving this window in a future upgrade?

You can do this without changing the screen resolution. Our knowledgebase support topic #136 gives the procedure to do this by clicking the "lesson expand" button:

Right, I do that. And it still only covers about 15 activities. . . And about 1/4 of my total screen. It would be really nice if the next upgrade would expand to a full screen size, for example.

A "full screen" view is planned for the next release. By the way, have you tried clicking the Lesson Expand button twice? This button is a 3-way toggle when clicked.

Thank you, Brian, that's what I was hoping to hear.

To answer your question in full here's what I'm seeing:

When I first open the Lessons/Activities Window, I have a small window that shows seven lessons.

Clicking the expand button once reveals twelve lines (lessons).

Clicking a third time reveals a total of fifteen lessons.

I appreciate your taking the time to answer my questions.
