Someone suggested in another thread that people with a busy switchbar (many chats and channels open) could benefit by putting the switchbar vertically on the left of the windiow, rather than (as by default) at the top
Only problem is, theres neither a scrollbar, nor an up/down button, so if you have more buttons than vetiocal space, you cant ever see the bottom ones.
Two suggestions to fix this:
1. if switchbar is vertical, the buttons compress in vertical size as it fills (much like they compress widthwise and become narrower on a horizonal swuitchbar when you open more windows)
2. "scroll up/scroll down" buttons are added at the top and/or bottom of a vertical switchbar (if full). If ANY of the windows out of sight have messages of highlights, the scroll buttons are coloured or blink accordingly to show it.
