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.
