Ah, I see. Well, GNUmed does not do much of anything to
define the size of dialogs. In this very case, in fact, it
even defines a minimum size as a hint to the GUI engine.
GNUmed cannot do much about the fact that the widget toolkit
decides that scrolling is desirable here.

No, because GNUmed does not define (and cannot define
either) the lengths of fields.

Exactly. This is the same problem. And, as you say, the
reason is that "gui is not resizing according to the
display/desktop size".

Yes, because gtklp uses the same GUI toolkit, namely gtk, which is GNOME.

You are right, GNOME fails to adapt itself to smaller screens.

Indeed, this has changed slightly. However, you can still
add brands / substances from this very part of the GUI: hit
either of the buttons to the right of the "Brand" or
"Substance" field. This will take you directly to "menu /
lists / substance" (or "... / brand")   :-)

Allowing direct entry of new drugs from within this GUI
appeared to be conceptually unsafe once you think of the
fact that this is used to both add and edit substance intake
