Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-10-02 00:10:34 UTC
Pulled from bug 37480 comment 17.

5) low: i think a scrollbar for the palette color list would be suitable, as presently there isnt any indication that their are more colors in the list than what is currently being seen. And if i select a color at the bottom of the scrolled list, when i reopen the popup, it wont show it selected.

I see a scrollbar on the right, where is the bug you are reporting?
Comment 2 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-10-02 07:18:31 UTC
Maybe this bug is limited to linux then (attachment 107210 [details]).
Comment 3 tommy27 2014-10-02 07:35:11 UTC
looks like Linux only indeed
Comment 4 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-10-02 09:37:53 UTC
Yes this seems to be a linux only issue and will happen in some themes. It happens in clearlooks, crux, high contrast, industrial, oxygen-gtk, raleigh, redmond, and xfce themes on linux mint 17 xfce.

Well the scrollbars are now appearing on Windows and Linux for me. I believe Matthew might have fixed this issue as we had talked about this issue on IRC a few days back.

The only thing that needs to be adjusted is the right padding between the scrollbar and the edge of the drop down, so that it is the same as the left side.

On linux, there is an 8 pixel padding on the left and a 2 pixel padding on the right. On Windows there is 7 pixels on the left and 3 pixels on the right. So if an addition 5 pixels can be added to the right. That would be the best possible fix.

After the fix to bug 85416, the scrollbars have disappeared again.

Its not showing for me on Linux Mint 13 Mate [Clearlooks] or Windows 7 [Basic]. On Windows 7, the scrollbar does appear (though half cut) in Classic and it shows fine in Aero.

Comment 14 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-11-08 20:35:20 UTC
Okay scrollbar are now appearing in Windows 7 Classic, but the dialog still needs 5 pixels added to it width so that it has the same padding on its right and left.
Comment 15 Samuel Mehrbrodt (allotropia) 2014-11-10 13:18:19 UTC
@Jay: Technically that's another bug, can you please file a new bug for that?

And what does that have anything to do with Jürgen’s scrollbar work? The padding was uneven before his commit. Please don’t reopen bugs like this, I think you were already told.

That said, moving this to VERIFIED.
Comment 17 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-11-11 14:47:10 UTC
My apologize. I had told tommy that we could fix the right padding issue with this bug and the bottom padding issue with the button bug. So i've opened a new bug for both padding issues (bug 86159).
