1. Some of the widget configurations allow for the use of scroll bars. That function doesn’t appear to be working.
That is correct. I chose not to restrict the height of any of the widgets, so the scroll bars become irrelevant. However I left the option in each config in case it became preferable to put scrolling back into operation. I personally prefer not to have scrolling in the widget side-bar. I feel it makes the whole thing messy, and promotes the use of too many widgets. But I’m open to alternative views, of course.
