Description Boulestin 2021-05-10 19:54:45 UTC
Sorry for my poor english
Version 7.x.x: sidebar and gallery.
impossible to resize the gallery panel, the name of the theme blocks resizing since version 7 of libo

Steps to Reproduce:
1 : create a new theme.
2 : name it with a long name.
    example: Pictograms - ADR (European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road)
3 : try to resize the gallery. 

Actual Results:
Resizing is not possible (works with all version 6.x)
LibreOffice sometimes shakes when you resize it several times in a row. (you have to kill the task)

Expected Results:
the gallery must resize

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Actually, the resize works--but with the longer user provided Gallery theme name the "minimum" width for the deck increases--the slider only accomodates so much width.

Related work on bug 140360  for option to turn off Sidebar's minimum width--and restore the "slide to collapse" behavior of original implementations will help.

Meanwhile, overly long theme names receive this handling, simply avoid them.

Dear Boulestin,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

If you have time, please do the following:

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:

4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
