Comment 5 Telesto 2020-08-20 15:33:41 UTC
Is it possible to initialize the Manage Changes dialog based on the larger "Reject/Clear formatting label". Instead adjusting the size continuously based on the content? 

See screencast

Yes is possible. (but it might then look fairly horrible with a huge mostly empty button).

To try it out see svx/source/dialog/ctredlin.cxx and the "m_xReject" button. There is a place where the two different strings are set. To make it always the same size then in the ctor you could set each string and after each set then query the size with "get_preferred_size" and then set the larger size with "set_size_request" and the button will then be unchanged in size regardless of which string is then used

I'm too newbie to decide, this is a bug or not a bug, so I just leave this here... :)

Comment 9 Heiko Tietze 2020-09-10 08:25:30 UTC
As there is request for UX input: dialogs with a user-defined size should not change on reloading. So ideally we size only at initialization but not later.
