Description Heiko Tietze 2016-02-27 19:17:14 UTC
Access to the "standard filter" (which is rather an overview of the current setup) is possible from the autofilter overlay widget or via menu: data > more filters > standard filter.

Issue: The dialog is badly sized and cannot made smaller (running on LibO fresh on KDE). I suggest to define a sensible minimal and maximal size for this (and every other) dialog.

raal: "WFM, ubuntu Unity. The dialog has minimal size, but can be sized."

Issue #2: When the current filter contains of many lengthy items, which can easily happen for text, the value input grows to a length above real screen estate. I suggest to cut the text with ellipsis.

raal: "3 - Confirm. bug."

This is a regression introduce in 4.2, likely when the dialog was converted over to glade.

The glade UI file is here is at core/sc/uiconfig/scalc/ui/standardfilterdialog.ui

As stretching the dialog downloads doesnt expose more entries, maybe its best to go with a fix width like the pre-4.2 version had.
