change in settings

AlCzervik

the display for my daily chess games changed today. out of the blue. the board is smaller due to the "clock", names of players, and piece count now moved to the left side of the screen, on the top and bottom of the board. the move/chat on the right side is now larger. can anyone explain this?

i don't think this is a glitch on my end. my cache is clear. i'm using google chrome on windows 10. when i went to settings, the option of board size is no longer available (why is that?). 

anyhow, looking for feedback on why this was changed and why the board size option is no longer available.

to be clear, the "7 days", our names, ratings, and captured pieces were all listed on the right side of the board yesterday, and, for the past many years, which allowed the board to be larger. 

it also makes absolutely no sense that a move list or chat function would take up more space than the actual game we are playing.

Mine is exactly the same, no changes.

Yes, Al, I know why this happened, and I can explain it. It happened to me before, exactly as you experienced.

Happened to me too - does anyone know how to fix this?

I have exactly the same problem but this thread seems to be going nowhere. It's been suggested to me that it has to do with the "focus mode" but I haven't been able to solve the problem. Help ! Please.

It is a simple fix in settings. I had it myself, once.

Can't see it anywhere in settings, Jimmy !

You can still resize the board just as before. Perhaps I miss your meaning. 

AlCzervik

could you explain how to resize the board? i see no feature as there used to be in settings>board and pieces-or-themes.

 you have to go to settings.
