[libreoffice-design] Re: Resizability of the dialogs


Jan,

I have also seen a report
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=86891) in which a user
had the LibreOffice file picking dialog appearing too wide, could not
resize it, and I had never made that one non-resizable (my only
modification to that one dialog was making it modal, Jay’s
suggestion).

I don’t think re-enabling resizing would be “the” fix for that.
Granted, it could be seen by some users as a regression, but the truth
is that many of those dialogs had resizability by mistake (it’s a
Glade default) but it just contributed to LibreOffice looking
unfinished: resizing, in most of the cases, did not help to actually
see more content, it just made the window uglier. (Exceptions are: the
Special Character, File picker, and Autocorrect dialogs, among a few
others).

So far, the “problematic” dialogs have been those of recent .ui
conversion, aren’t they? I am aware of the problem appearing sometimes
in the Hyperlink and fpicker dialogs, right? Are you aware of others?

A correct fix would be to find the thing in the old profiles that’s
botching the dialog size, and remove it on migration. Perhaps Caolán,
if he finds a little time, could help. If it proves too
time-consuming, then you can re-enable resizing, although that should
be a last-resort method.
