This is a request to improve the playability when the device screen is vertical.

You can see in the image how the texts overlap due to the limited space.

How about we simplify things and show only the most essential?.

You can omit the coordinates and other non-essential values in my humble opinion.

In principle a good idea, we could show the short date etc. However, if the screen is that narrow, some windows may not fit the screen either ...

Certainly, but I also sometimes have problems with the horizontal orientation and so I should have been rotating the screen to be able to manipulate certain windows better.

With respect to the enormous amount that represents the current capital of the juagdro.


How about we simplify it like some games do, for example:

100,000 = 100k
100,000,000 = 100m

That is already built in for the millions onward.

In the nightly from r11306, there is a compat status bar. But if it is too narrow, it may still overlap.
