In a few of the games it would be nice to have a vertical scrollbar kick in if a tableau reaches the bottom of the screen, or autoscroll by moving the mouse to the bottom of the screen. As it is now, a very long tableau can run off the screen in fullscreen mode.

Add my vote to that, there are quite a few games where (depending on your tactics, of course) extra-long tableaux are common. Triple Scorpion is the only one I play semi-regularly, but there are several others.

And even if you can remember what cards are off the screen, it's impossible to access them and play them.

Sure, higher screen resolution helps, but (a) I don't like any application which forces me to change from what works fine for everything else, and (b) I'm sure that even a super-high resolution might occasionally not be enough, if tableaux get long enough.

I asked for that years ago, Tom will probably give you the same answer. So now I just consider it one of the rules of the games - don't get off the marked road. Maybe piling up the cards as the tiles pile up in PGMJ could solve this.

There are technical reasons why this just wasn't possible (and I think it is still not possible). PGS uses a different programming language than PGMJ and Action Solitaire so what is possible in one isn't necessarily in the other.
