Description Evgen 2017-08-13 22:25:01 UTC
Description:
Some dialog windows (like Standard filter) have fixed size so searched results won't fit. Prior to version 5.3 standard filter results were long enough to read them without horizontal scrolling because dialog window size adapted to the longest cell content. Now I have to either use older version or use special rules of window manager (KWin) to enlarge those dialogs.
Similar thing with search results, initially that dialog window is too small to see fully long line but at least it's re-sizable.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enter something long in the cell
2.Select whole column
3.Open standard filter dialog

Actual Results:  
Standard filter dialog is too small to see the 'Value' 

Expected Results:
Standard filter dialog is at least adaptable to the value like before. Ideally re-sizable.


Reproducible: Always

Moving it back to UNCONFIRMED until someone else confirms it.
Comment 2 Xisco Faulí 2017-08-15 00:13:04 UTC
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
Comment 3 Evgen 2017-08-15 06:40:36 UTC
Yes, I tried 'fresh' / 5.4.0.3 version from Ubuntu's ppa. This issue is easily reproducible under most Desktop envirornments (I tried XFCE, MATE, KDE) with gtk2, gtk3 and kde VCL UI.

Comment 6 Evgen 2017-08-20 18:07:44 UTC
It's not a duplicate of bug 49813, it's a different bug. I reported about unrealizable narrow Dialog window of Standard filter, not Autofilter pop-up window.
Added screenshot

Confirm the regression.

Resolves: tdf#98240 limit width of widgets of standard filter
and make the dialog non-resizeable because the ancient
core impl can only have 4 rows visible at a time
Comment 9 Caolán McNamara 2017-08-28 14:05:35 UTC
The "original" dialog wasn't resizeable, it was resizeable for a while after conversion to .ui and then back to resizeable again.

Its trivial to make it nominally resizeable, just remove the resizeable property of False line in sc/uiconfig/scale/ui/standardfilterdialog.ui but the dialog doesn't play particularly well when resized, so I'm going to personally leave this alone as I don't see it as a regression from the original state and I've no enthusiasm to be on the hook to work through making it play perfectly when resized.

It works, thank you!
Any chance to make it tunable for a regular user?

sudoedit /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/config/soffice.cfg/modules/scalc/ui/standardfilterdialog.ui
