Problem description: AutoFilter too narrow and unresizable

Steps to reproduce:
1. Fill two or more cells in a column with something like:
   "HTC Sensation 4G - 1GB -(T-Mobile) Smartphone Black"
   "HTC Sensation 4G - 1GB -(T-Mobile) Smartphone White"
   "HTC Sensation 4G - 1GB -(T-Mobile) Smartphone Red"
2. Add autofilter for the first cell: choose Data -> Filter -> AutoFilter.
3. Choose the autofilter properties.

Current behavior:
   You see only:
   "HTC Sensation 4G - 1GB -("
   "HTC Sensation 4G - 1GB -("
   "HTC Sensation 4G - 1GB -("
   And you can't resize the dialog.

Expected behavior:
   Autofilter dialog width depends on the column width and has resize/hscroll 

Affected versions: 4.1.x, 4.0.x, 3.6.x...

Operating System: All
Version: (See in Summary)

Hi Serge,

I think the autofilter dialogue has a fixed width.

Activating the Tips in Menu/Tools/Options/LibreOffice/General - Help - Tips,
when the mouse is over one item shows the all text of the item.

As if works at expected I don't think this is a bug, maybe a request for enhancement.
Please change the status in accordance with the better option for you.

Yes, autofilter pop-up window is unresizeable, which leads to some usability issues in corner cases.

It has been reported earlier (see Bug 49813). Closing as duplicate, then. Please continue discussion in mentioned bug report.
