Allow all windows to be maximised

There are a number of windows that could do with having a maximise window button added instead of forcing a user to have to increase the size of columns and then use a scrollbar to read the contents.

Examples of such windows would be:

  • task properties: "data set" if a path is long results in horizontal scrolling to read path.
  • task log: The message is typically far longer than the window again resulting in horizontal scrolling.

Essentially any window that has may result in scrolling on either plane should be given a maximise button.

  • Milestone set to Eraser 6.1/6.2

The task log window is already resizable, just without a maximise button. I think this shouldn't be too hard to do, just that I'd probably check with our designer to see what he thinks is the best design (like resizing and such)

I'll only implement this for 6.2 though.

Oh, and for the task-log window, you can double-click a log message to read it in a message box. I think the second suggestion thus doesn't really apply. What do you think?

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to duplicate

This seems to be covered by #385.
