Description 2014-07-30 05:55:43 UTC
Problem description: 
In German some words are longe than in english. Therefore the size of the drop-down-menu with the style-sheets in the formatting-toolbar has to be a bit bigger.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the stylesheet-menu in the formatting-toolbar.

Current behavior:
Some stylesheet-names are cut, because this window is too narrow.

Expected behavior:
As a first workaround the opened drop-down-menu should be a bit wider. But it would be best, if it automatically depends its size on the longest entry, then it would fit perfect for every language.

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

Can confirm that fro Win7/Libo with res. 1920x1080 (writer full screen)
see screenshot as atached.

The user have to guess, that the two styles are different and named 
"Überschrift1" and "Überschrift2" as displayed after clicking in the formfield.

Best regards

I have the same problem with Hungarian locals, although the problem is not so critical.

(As I know there is an ongoing project to solve such problems in dialogues, but I don't know its scope and any technical details. See

Actually it doesn't have enough space even for English.
