[GNC] How to change size of register in Gnucash 3.4

Liz
Debian Linux
Build ID: 3.4+ (2018-12-30)

I had the registers set so that I could open 4 without overlapping on
my screen.
With Gnucash 3.4 they all got wider and now take up more screen space
than I desire.

With the mouse pointer I can make wider still but I wish to make them
narrower, and it doesn't wish to make it as narrow as I wish.

I've tried altering WindowGeometry in Account.gnucash.gcm but this
doesn't seem to have any effect at all.

I found two versions of Account.gnucash.gcm
and the newer one does not pay attention to a lesser width, just opens
the same size, and rewrites the larger number on closing the register.

I think this is this feature that I reported as a bug [1]

@Liz can you explain what you meant by finding two versions?  Are they
associated with different versions of GC?

I presume they are from different versions.

Right, https://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/Configuration_Locations should
explain the details.

If I'm understanding this problem correctly, you are referring to the space taken up by the register title tabs across the top of the screen. If that is the problem, my solution has been to move them to the right where I can have 20+ register titles visible.Edit>Preferences>Windows>Tab Position>Right

I don't think that is the issue (at least it is not the one I am seeing).
The problem is that the Gnucash window cannot be shrunk below a certain
size, and the minimum size has got significantly larger with 3.x.  See the
bug I linked to earlier.

No, I only have a few open in most accounts, one has just 3 open.
