What toggles visibility of Progress Center, Histogram Center, etc.?

Question

I've probably overlooked something obvious...   I'm doing an image sequence right now, and Progress Center is not on the screen; only the rotating dial at the upper right is the progress indicator.  During the previous imaging sequence, Progress Center dominated the right-hand side of the screen, which was handy.

Also, Histogram Center has appeared, and I don't recall seeing it in the previous sequence.

I presume there are buttons that toggle the visibility of these, and I haven't recognized them...?

AFAIK the application controls what panels are visible, as well as where they are on the screen. This depends on what the application is doing.

With my copy of BYE 3.2.2, when I start an imaging sequence the Progress Center replaces the Capture Plan Center. When the image sequence completes, the Capture Plan Center is displayed. The Histogram Center is always displayed when I am on the imaging tab. I presume that BYN displays the same panels the same way since the user interfaces use much the same code.

I do know that the panels may be re-arranged, based on the display size and screen resolution. Do you have a small screen?

OK, I didn't realize I had resized it, so it must have been only a smidgeon short of the full screen, but I'll try that.

If anomalies continue, I'll take screenshots.   It may be a few days (or more) before I can observe again, but I might do some tests indoors, taking pictures of nothing, just to try out the software.

The computer is a ThinkPad T490s, 1920x1080 with 150% magnification, so effectively 1280x720.  Is that too small?

[EDIT:] Your software does give me a better screen layout if I go down to 125%, which makes the screen effectively 1536x864.   I am guessing the effective height under 800 triggers your software to start hiding things.  Several other pieces of software also seem better behaved.  Am I on the right track?

The easiest way is to set the magnification to 100%.  As you see, not all apps handle increased magnification gracefully. It may not be the fault of the application developer, but an issue with the underlying user interface technology.

If I do that, too many things become too small to read.   This is 1920x1080 and is a 14-inch screen.

It was much, much simpler than that.   On the Settings menu is a checkbox that turns Progress Center (big display) off.  I had apparently hit it.

The disappearance of Histogram Center does seem to depend on screen resolution settings.  I don't particularly need to see it but have not yet found a checkbox that toggles it on and off.

By the way, I cannot find that "Netbook Resolution" has any effect at all in any screen mode.  I'm aware it would only have an effect after saving the setting, closing the app, and reopening it.  It never had any effect.

Let me suggest one piece of documentation that is seriously needed:  Labeled screen shots of every menu and everything on the screen in all modes, with a clear indication of what each and every one of them does.
