Under Ubuntu 18.04 with a Gnome session, when editing the data of a table from a database in LO Base, the toolbar at the bottom of the window which show the current record number and navigation buttons, is far too narrow and is unusable.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a database containing a table or create one
2. in the left panel, select "Table"
3. right click on the table name in the panel "Tables" and choose "Open"
Look at the bottom left of the window. You should see a toolbar with "Record" label, a field with the current record number and navigation buttons.
If GTK3 VCL plugin is used, this toolbar is so narrow it is unusable.
The toolbar is wide enough to be usable
User Profile Reset: Yes
Reproducible for me from LO 6.1 to LO 6.3 with VCL plugin GTK3. Not reproducible with generic VCL plugin. OpenGL not used.
From question on FR AskLibo it is reproducible with LO 6.0: https://ask.libreoffice.org/fr/question/179641/base-ubuntu-barre-dinformation-illisible

Did you install "libreoffice-gtk3" for testing?
I couldn't reproduce it with LO 22.214.171.124 gtk3 on OpenSUSE 15, 64bit rpm Linux.

Yes. I guess the problem comes from the config designed by Ubuntu for the Gnome session.

Please, could you attach a screencopy? How wide are the horizontal and vertical scrollbars of the windows in your Gnome session?
Best regards. JBF

I don't use Gnome and also don't use Ubuntu. I have made a screenshot of VCL-gtk3 under XFCE in OpenSUSE 15.
Confirming on Elementary Juno with LO 6073
Isn't this more of a Ubuntu-specific packaging issue, in which case NOTOURBUG ?
Reproduced also in
LO Snap Version 6142
BuildID : libreoffice-184.108.40.206-snap1
VCL : gtk3

I think it is not a packaging issue because I see it in my own builds, but it may be Ubuntu Gnome only because of customized Gnome provided by Ubuntu.
That being said, I don't think it's a good idea to place active elements in a space whose size you can't control. This toolbar should therefore probably be redesigned.
