Humm yes.. this is a problem, as I did not find any simple 
way to get a clean interface working on both 640X480 and 
>1280X1024 (it is either too small for 1280, or too large 
for 640). Everything is coded using VC++ MFC's, and moving 
a single object is really a pain.

Note: You can also drag&drop URLs in the HTTrack URL box 
from IE or Netscape, which may be useful :)

This is almost dont in Options/Scan Rules.. but maybe in a 
less clearer way

Yes - except that httrack renames them using -2, -3 and so 
on.. (Chrono Cross-2.MID, Chrono Cross-3.MID..)

Well, if interrupting, you should use 'Continue..' and 
not 'Update..' (update will check remotely all files, 
continue will only use caches data).
Besides, the engine has an 'update hack' implemented, which 
attempt, DURING UPDATES, not to redownload twice an up-to-
date file. This sometimes fails (especially with 
dynamically generated html), and there isn't any workaround 
(you can see that the two files (old/new) were identical.. 
once you ave downloaded the new one)
