Problem clicking on scrollbar when Editor2 is maximized...

Please remove the excess window frame padding that is to the right of the scrollbar when Editor2 is maximized. This will allow us to interact with the scrollbar when we move the mouse to the rightmost edge of the screen. Currently, when we try to click on the scrollbar, we unintentionally click the frame padding instead.

The only way I can recreate the behaviour you describe is to intentionally set the "Classic" Windows theme within Control Panel - it does not occur on other themes, and indeed happens for all programmes running under such a skin, as that padding/gap is added by the theme itself - not ed2.

Since it's a side-effect of an MS designed rendering overlay, it's not really something developers have too much direct control over. :shrug:

i'm using windows 7 aero theme, not classic. also, this issue is controllable by the developer. there are other programs that managed to avoid this issue under windows 7. so i know it's possible to fix.

I cannot recreate it under Aero, Basic, or others using stock settings (no user-changes to individual theme elements) - it only occurs in Classic.
