just installed 1.8.2 for fsx/fs2004 and administrator window is too big (fsx and fs2004) to see bottom and can't resize or move (top already at top of screen). can't see approve, commit, ok etc. buttons - completely unusable. screen resolution is maxed out at 1366 x 768. help! no scrollbars or window sizing arrows at edges either. right clicking on title bar "size" menu item is disabled. luckily i had made a backup of 1.8.0 for both fsx and fs2004 so i just copied and pasted both and it even saved my "careers". i guess my 1366 x 768 resolution laptop is outdated just like my still using fsx/fs2004. (decreasing resolution only cuts off more of the bottom of the administrator interface.

We're sorry for the problem. If you could post or email a screenshot showing us the new Flight Dispatch tab on your screen, we can better get a grip on what things look like for you.
If we can come up with workarounds in the next weeks, I'll make them part of a Service Pack that I'd like to have available before the end of our new season. (Summer in the North, Winter in the South.)
There are other improvements in the Admin.exe that 1.8.1 lack, so if we can get you using 1.8.2, so much the better. I would strongly caution against mixing 1.8.0 and 1.8.2 components. If you feel the need to do so, please make a backup of your 1.8.2 options.cfg file, as the 1.8.0 Admin may overwrite that file... without newer options being retained!
We know that our "OK" button can be triggered with the Enter key, and our "Cancel" button can be triggered by the Close Dialog icon. Yes, both of those will close the Administrator, so we know this isn't an optimal workaround.
Clicking on a scroll-able window allows the cursor keys (and mouse wheels) to scroll the window's contents.
Currently, there are no workarounds if the "View Release --- Commit --- Reject" buttons are not visible. But I can account for those in a Service Pack.

thanks for your reply but i have gone back to 1.8.0 or 1.8.01 for fsx and fs2004 respectively. i can see the whole administrator interface. my laptop max resolution is 1366 x 768 which i guess is old nowadays. in lieu of a screenshot everything below the select plan and get weather buttons is un-seeable and unreachable in any manner as i have tried everything i was referring to above. i will look for the service pack on your website but in the meantime i am perfectly happy with 1.8.0
