Cannot confirm for English/German

Version: 7.1.0.0.alpha0+
Build ID: 32020eb33ba9501510acb449bc84cfaa85bc0bd0
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.8; UI render: default; VCL: kf5 or gtk3

Calc: threaded

The dialog scales automatically (like any other dialog) depending on the content. It should break after 50 characters in the description (first text) or the lengthy build info (both should break after 50 chars).

Not a topic UX if there is a bug
Comment 5 Telesto 2020-09-25 13:38:57 UTC
No issue with German.. and i'm to lazy to go an search for another example.. 

And I see it as UX in the way if the dialog should adjust to content, or content to dialog..

I don't see any problem here. I like that the dialog changes its size and user can see all text

I suggest close it as NOTABUG

Aesthetically less nice; IMHO I assume it will still fit on the smallest screen.
