Flashmode isn't supposed to be run on small screens, not because of  
its panel, but because the editor and preview window should be placed  
side by side.

Anyway, Paul Hagstrom faced the same problem and redesigned the panel.  
The new .nib file can be downloaded from


Copy MainMenu.nib to Flashmode.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/  
(control-click on the application and choose "Show package contents").

There won't be any official changes to Flashmode's panel, it just  
looks fine on my screen.
