Feature request #2721
Smaller properties window for better display

The properties windows of a layer is using a lot vertical space to display the different categories making necessary to scroll down. On a 17" screen, the diagram overlay is hidden at the bottom even when maximizing the window to the borders of the screen, making it hard to discover for unexperienced users. I saw a try on an small 10" netbook and the result wasn't pleasant.
The same reasoning that happened on the composer window should be applied there too. The solution could be similar, the categories could be displayed in a text list instead of the actual big icons.
See #2202 for an example of awkward display caused by the icons list
