Title: Window Sizes Too Small In Ubuntu 14.10
The sizes of some of the windows are too small in some cases to hold all of the controls. Also, the user can re-size windows to a small enough size that some window components disappear.
Cause Of Problem:
It probably is caused by differences is the fonts used in release 14.10 (compared to 14.04). Also, the space occupied by the title-bar differs among the different Ubuntu variants.
If you re-size the windows a little larger, the missing controls will appear.
Fix Available (in 1-10):
The fixes for these various problems were completed (and published) on December 2nd, 2014. If you installed later than that date, or used the non-offline desktop launcher (which downloads updates), you should not have this problem.
