Yeah, the interface just threw me for a loop. It appeared as a list of
options. It was not entirely clear that you had to scroll left/right to
get options to change. Perhaps a different UI scheme (something more
standard) would be better and more intuitive; at least a little arrow
indicator perhaps next to the option to denote the fact that you can in
fact go left/right to change it.
Why the change from the popup window scheme? That was at least
intuitive; you had a few buttons to choose from and it did not present
itself as a listbox.
