    This is weird enough that I don't expect to receive an answer.

    I have a desktop ​PC (Win 8.1) that I use for all my development work. Fiddler is installed on this machine. I also have a MacBook Pro (Yosemite). When I want to work remotely, I use Microsoft Remote Desktop to log into my Windows box.

    Fiddler works just fine as it always has on the desktop machine. But when I access the desktop machine via RDP from the Mac, the Response panel is gone from the Inspectors. I can see all the sessions on the left, but the right side only has the top right Request panel and all its tabs. The lower right Response panel is just plain gone, and no amount of resizing/minimizing/maximizing the window or closing/reopening the application makes it appear.

    I can access the response by right clicking the session and choosing "Inspect in New Window" and pressing the Response button. So it's no show stopper. But it's... weird!

    Hi, Michael--

    It is possible for the splitter in the Inspectors tab to be pushed below the visible height of the window; this is more likely to occur in the event of resolution changes. The value is stored in the registry as HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Fiddler2\UI\tabsRequest_Height

    Within Fiddler, you might try View > Stacked Layout or View > Wide Layout.

    Alternatively, hold the SHIFT key while starting Fiddler, which will reset its UI layout to the default, but this will reset all layout.

    (Fiddler 4.0.3 will check for splitter visibility automatically for you. Thanks for the report!).
