Which version of Ardour is that? (Menu > help > About)

Soundcloud upload has been disabled in 5.8-166-g9c016c619 because it does not work. Currently the checkbox is only visible in debug-builds (until it is fixed).

PS. Windows in general never shrink by themselves. The only exception in Ardour is currently the plugin-analysis tab and that can reduce the window below user-set size (which some consider a bug).

PPS. It may happen that built-in Soundcloud upload will be removed completely. Compared to entering username+password, it's faster to click "open folder" and drag/drop a file to a web-browser or to run a soundcloud uploader as post-export script.

Same behaviour for the official 5.8 and the latest git (5.8-203-ga199477) in debug mode (ardbg) at least.

Granted, this Soundcloud export is not a core feature, and could be removed plain and simple. I do use Soundcloud, though I've never used this export function because as you say, it's not even a huge time saver.

Though if this feature is kept, the window should resize back when unticking, as it resizes when ticking.

Another idea would be to put the id/pass somewhere in the preferences, and ticking would:
a) be grayed if these parameters are missing (e.g. with a little message "To use Soundcloud, please fill the infos in Preferences" on hover)
b) hence, not resize the window
This second solution would also make sense as these id/pass often stay the same. Maybe another user/pass setting in the Session Properties could override (if not empty) the main one for people who e.g. mix for different people, so the setting *could* be changed per-session, with a default in the preferences.
