This is probably a bug more than a feature request. :) However, in trying to keep this program as Mac-like as possible, I'm posting this report.

I've enabled by default both top AND bottom arrows for all my scrollbars system-wide. (see first screenshot)

However, A12 (and previous versions) do not display the second arrow. BUT, if I click on the appropriate area, it still functions properly. Hence, this is a quasi-bug that hopefully will be a simple GUI change.

Keep up all the good work on the alpha versions! It's getting more and more fun to use Logos 4.

I checked in my preferences, but don't see an option for that in Snow Leopard.  Where did you make that setting?

I don't see that preference either, so I'm not certain it's a mac standard. I'm sure there are 3rd party hacks that will do this. I note that Pages and Keynote have them only on the bottom of the scrollbar. Truth be told, I don't ever even use a scrollbar anymore. On my MacBook Pro, I use two fingers on the trackpad; when I use a mouse, I use the scrollwheel.

It's a hidden setting that can be set with a "defaults write" and/or a tool called TinkerTool that allows you to set hidden prefs like this one.

In Leopard, Appearance the second section contains options for scroll arrows.

Doesn't the option "Place Scroll Arrows Together" accomplish the same thing? It is possible that I set this in TinkerTool and thought I had done in with System Preferences.

Ah, that explains it then.  Thanks.  I prefer not to "tinker"... I left that to my PC days. :-)

Same in Snow L., but you will notice that these standard options do not create the arrows as Rich has shown.

As I told Cameron, perhaps I set it in TinkerTool. The main reason I tinker is that it allows me to set the Dock exactly where I want it (bottom left on the left monitor).

I use TinkerTool as well to force the dock to my preferred position (left side, start/top).

The dual arrows at top/bottom is a hidden setting. If you use the preferences setting "At top and bottom" it will place a single arrow at the top and a single arrow at the bottom.
