In Base, edit query, add some tables, create a join between the tables. Right mouse click on the line representing the relationship, the dialog box is ok size to show control buttons at bottom (OK, Cancel). However, if join relationship is changed to one with a longer description (e.g., LEFT JOIN) the control buttons are pushed outside the visible area in the dialog box. Cannot press "OK" without resizing dialog box.
This may be regression for 188.8.131.52
In prior release I don't think there was any problem with the control buttons being pushed outside the visible area.
Please provide clear steps and a sample (simple) file to test on. Marking as NEEDINFO - once you do the above the bug to UNCONFIRMED.
@Doug - I'm seeing a lot of bugs reported by you and that's awesome but please keep in mind how thin our QA team is. It's ALWAYS beneficial to include clear and simple steps as well as a sample document. Also keep in mind that database is one of our least used components so the QA team is less familiar with the component and thus it makes it even more crucial to have repro steps and an attachment.
Thanks for understanding.

here is a test document to demonstrate this bug. I noted in making it that the bug is *not* present on LO Base 184.108.40.206/Linux. Bug repeatedly encountered in LO Base 220.127.116.11/Windows7.
Per bug report:
1. open Query1 for edit
2. right mouse click on line relationship between two tables in query builder, click edit
3 this dialog box is the problem. LO provides text explanation for default inner_join that is shorter in length than explanation for LEFT JOIN or RIGHT JOIN, especially where as in test document there are long table names.
4. in Windows 7 or LO 18.104.22.168 or both, the control buttons are at bottom rather than to right in LO 22.214.171.124/Linux.
As a result, the long explanation that is inserted in dialog box when selecting LEFT JOIN or RIGHT JOIN pushes the dialog box buttons out of view and the user has to find them by manually resizing the dialog box.
(I originally posted this under the wrong bug, sorry)

dialog box correctly formatted (Windows 7)

dialog box after changing join type, buttons out of view (Windows 7)
Probably UI rework of Base dialogs, where window does not correctly resize
Can not reproduce on master 440 alpha OSX 10.10 - the Join dialog window coorectly displays full length of table names at top and buttons at bottom
Can't reproduce on LO 4322 either.
Possibly Windows only bug ?
@Doug : please test with LO 4322 with clean LO profile and report back
All is ok for me. It seems all the work with dialogs has changed the appearance (definitely completely different from the screenshots).
I recommend that the reporter test with 4.4 beta http://www.libreoffice.org/download/pre-releases/
Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.

Adding self to CC if not already on
On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated yesterday or with LO Debian package 4.3.3, I don't reproduce this.
Let's put this one to WFM.
Doug: if you can reproduce this with a recent LO version (last stable one is 4.3.5), don't hesitate to reopen this tracker.
Looks great Windows 7 LO 184.108.40.206. Thx.
WFM is appropriate status when we don't know what commit fixed the issue. Thanks!
We actually know the commit fixing this issue. See duplicate.
