I would like to suggest that the answer to each problem I have with the new tree is not to change my browser, screen resolution or compatability settings.
I have also responded directly to GR with the same suggestion, just to make sure.

Angela, I do agree with you GR should make the site accessible to all but until they do then some members don't have a choice if they want to continue using the site until GR sort it out

The two main things that can be done in the mean time which takes seconds to do is clear cache and when if a page is not displaying correctly change to compatibility view

If compatibility view was not necessary then no browser would have that facility

GR is not the only web site where compatibility view is required

also when a site updates it often requires you to clear your cache but the problem with GR is they are updating most days due to the site not being tested correctly before it was launched

screen resolution makes no difference i have tried all combinations and get the same results, bottom of tree dashboard and details panel still out of range the only way is to use the zoom function for that part of the tree
