Hi,

The toolbar looks awful on a ultrawide monitor.

Thanks.

Could you describe what looks awful about it?

Toolbar items are distributed across the width of the monitor, which is an atypical and non-standard approach (items of menu/context toolbar/tools are also aligned to one side). There is a unnecessary/impractical space between the groups of buttons.

Go to "Customize Toolbar" and replace all the "flexible spaces" between each tool bar item with regular "space" and you can force all of the toolbar buttons to the left or right (or toss flexible between 2 sets of regular spaced items to have left and right oriented tools).

In order for the appearance and behavior of the application to be consistent, fixed space should be used by default.

Perhaps, but apparently Serif decided that the icons on the Toolbar should span the window width, which is also a form of consistency :)

In order for this to be "consistent," the Context toolbar and the Menu items should be expanded to the full width of the window.
If only one element of many behaves like this, it is inconsistent.
