I think it might have something to do with having reduced the GUI size to minimum. In my experience, both the divider, and especially the right arrow resize GUI control, are really difficult to use. I suspect it's a screen pixel region sensitivity issue (overly tight). Tricky to get just the right position to allow the control to work. Not sure if VNC is also complicating it, but I'll explore this a bit more. In either case, I can work around it...more of a nuisance than a serious issue. Now that I know how to minimize/restore the GUI, I can keep it larger and maybe the whole issue is moot.

If there's a way to minimize the Ekos display like for the Indi GUI (which can be minimized and brought back up when desired), I would be appreciative of knowing how to do this. Thanks!
I can confirm the problem with the dividing bar at the bottom. I don't know what exactly triggers it, but whenever it gets too small, and I then try to enlarge it again, it collapses completely. The only way to see the log then is to grab the handle and pull it more than halfway up the window. At that point the window will switch ENTIRELY to now show the log portion only. To get the EKOS GUI back, I now have to grab the handle on the top and again pull it down >50 % towards the bottom. At that point, the window will switch over again ENTIRELY to the GUI, without showing any log portion.

You can also explore hotkeys to pull it up and down quickly.
