614 - Frame Width more then 100

It would be great to have the possibility to set the frame width greater then 100.

    I play at 1920x1080 on a 27" monitor, with UI scaling disabled. I'm severely nearsighted and astigmatic. My Grid frames are 60 wide and 50 high. I just can't imagine any need for frames more than twice the size I use, and feel that such huge frames would run counter to the primary design goals of Grid -- making it easy to see the whole group at once, and making it as fast as possible to select group members by clicking on their frames.

    If you really think you need bigger frames, you can always use the Scale option on the Layout tab to effectively double the sizes.

    Also, a unit frame 200 wide and 10 high would definitely fall into the "long thin bar" category.

    I am your opinion, but this has nothing todo with "long thin bar". Grid was designed for none widescreen resolution now the most players use widescreen resolution. That should make it possible to increase the width of the frame, too.

    Increasing the frame width to 150 or 200 would be enough and i don't think that this would result in "long thin bar" style raid frames.

    There are no plans to increase the maximum width (or height) beyond 100. If you want a "long thin bar" style raid frame, Grid may not be the right addon for you.
