... and it should not. You can make it very big, and create a bunch of empty space.

The screenshot was made under Windows, but in Linux/Metacity is worse, as it has a Maximize button.

(related to Widget Layout conversion).
Operating System: All
Version: rc

I can confirm it is resizable. This is due the .ui conversion.

@Caolan: you agree too, to make it un-resizable?

Kind regards,
Comment 2 Caolán McNamara 2013-07-12 10:01:46 UTC
Gnome HIG does have "alerts should not be resizable" so I can toggle the alerts to non-resizable.

Thanks a bunch, Caolán, you rock! Will this land into 4.1 as well?
Comment 5 Caolán McNamara 2013-07-12 12:21:46 UTC
I hadn't planned to. Is there a good reason to. I mean it seems rather low-impact in the sense that it just disallows you stretching them ?

Fair enough. =)
