about dialog

It likely just needs to be increased in size. This doesnt happen with 4.4 daily.

buttons cropped

I've noticed a number of places where buttons also get snipped.

Again, do not CC the whole UX-Advise for this kind of bugs (which do not require design discussion). Feel free to CC me instead.

Sorry about that. My submission link always sets it to ux-advise and sometimes i forget to change it off. :D

Should i submit another bug report for attachment 114250 [details]?

sideByside of patched About Dialog, still clipped

@Adolfo, *

The about dialog is still being clipped on its bottom edge. The change of spacing from 24 -> 12 just made the dialog smaller (attached screen clip pre&post patch).

Do the GtkGrid objects need a vexpand property?

Of course.

Thanks for the screenshot. Well, I doubt that vexpand would work here, I were to provide a complete patch to cui/source/dialogs/about.cxx but I haven’t really gotten around to it yet. I’ll go on vacation in a couple of weeks, but if you want to speed up things, you’re free to take this.

I don't get the cropping anymore with the latest master. There was also cropping in Impress - Rectangle - Position & size dialog, but now it's gone.

Comment 9 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-04-10 09:48:35 UTC
Yes the cropping of buttons mentioned in comment 2 was fixed in bug 90481, which may have also fixed the issue here.
