This is a bit of an odd one. I've had a play with this and everything works fine for me (doesn't it always
Check your channel window settings - in the Program Options dialog, go to the Display tab and click on <i>Channel windows</i>. In particular, you want to check what <i>Max. item pane size</i> is set to.
Do you exit Awasu while it's minimized? This can sometimes cause odd behaviour, although typically not what you're seeing.
Does it affect every channel? Try opening the channel's Properties dialog, clicking on OK and then exiting. The item pane sizing is stored in the channel's <tt>.CHANNEL</tt> file
and doing this forces the file to be saved to disk.
And if you don't mind fiddling around a bit with your Awasu installation, it's possible to rollback from 2.4.2 to 2.4.1 (not that this is usually <i>not</i> the case!) so you might want to try that and see if it really is being caused by something that changed in 2.4.2. Grab the <tt>awasu.exe</tt> from the 2.4.1 and copy it into your Awasu installation directory. You can call it <tt>awasu-241.exe</tt> if you like, to make it easy to alternate between running the different versions. However, you will have to update your <tt>CONFIG.INI file</tt>
- open it up in Notepad and change the <tt>Version=...</tt> line as appropriate.
