    So far it looks like issue is not existing anymore. Thanks

    Yes, I meant Quick Drop, but couldn't remember its proper name. I'm using the latest version of JKI Design Palette. However, the problem disappeared. It seems that it disappeared after I first tried Ctrl+Alt+Space to pop up the Design Palette. After that Ctrl+Space correctly opens Quick Drop window.

    I am having difficulty creating a UI that scales well for monitors of different resolutions. For programs that have numerous indicators and controls the scaling issue can be especially challenging. The solution provided by NI to this issues as I have read it is to use splitter bars https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW/Different-Screen-Resolutions-What-is-the-best-method/td-p/1749514 By using splitter bars you can get front panel objects to 'scale' within their pane by first grouping the controls/indicators and then right clicking the group and selecting 'scale object with pane' (although the controls often look distorted when scaling). However, this solution is only viable if you have a limited number of front panel items. When I have too many objects to be displayed on a single window I use tab controls to organize my front panel items. However, you can not use splitter bars within a tab control to so the objects placed on the tab control pages won't scale. https://forums.ni.com/t5/LabVIEW-Idea-Exchange/Tab-Controls-with-Splitter-Bars/idi-p/990693 Are there any other viable solutions that people are using to solve this issue? Does it require sub panels? Are there any best practices?

    An easy way to do a super simple resizeable UI, I think, is to use splitter bars and then choose one pane that has some kind of big UI element that is easy to resize like a graph that you can just set as "size to pane". Then set the sticking of the splitter bars so that one pane is the only one that changes size on panel resize events and all others stay the same. Then you don't have to worry about scaling all the little buttons and dealing with decorations getting pixelated. But for a tab control, yeah there is no easy way sadly (at least that I know of). For this, I usually just use radio buttons as the tabs and then a subpanel and switch out which VI is displayed in the subpanel based on the radio buttons.
