    Re: Allow GUI to display multiple pages simultaneously

    Thank you for this suggestion. This doesn't seem a very widely copied user interface (and your screenshot is from 13 year old software). That doesn't suggest it was a great UI.

    Microsoft Word has something sort of similar - where if your screen is large enough - you can see multiple pages at once. Really - lots of graphics programs do that.

    But the key there is that there is a well-defined notion of PAGE SIZE - to leverage. In the case of quicken - and HealthFrame - there often isn't. In both cases, you could show MORE of the first page - she stuff hidden by the scrollbar. How many 'pages' do you show at a time. Do you scale the pages to fit? Or just hide data with a scrollbar?

    Please note - with HealthFrame - even in HF v2 - there a 'pages list' on the lower left side of the screen so you can quickly and easily pop between pages (I know thats not as good).

    We are exploring a number of possible UI improvements in this regard (some of which are already in HealthFrame v3 beta). But it would be better for us if you could tell us what you are TRYING TODO in HealthFrame - that is currently awkward.

    Hearing HOW you think we should fix it (showing multiple pages at the same time) is useful, but hearing "WHAT IS HARD TODO" or "WHAT WORKS BADLY" is much more important to us, since it better allows us to evaluate alternatives.

    Thanks so much for your feedback and for any clarifications you maybe able to provide.
