Desktop at 800x600 with contact editor (45.12 KB, image/png)

Description Fernando Herrera 2001-08-24 14:14:07 UTC
Description of Problem:Some dialogs in evolution do not fit into a normal
800x600 desktop (with normal gnome 1.4 instalation, normal fonts, and
spanish locale)

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Set your resolution to 800 600
2. Open contact editor

	This is very annoying. I'm not sure if there is a "minimal" resolution for
exceuting evolution, but 800x600 if very common in old computers and
laptops. I'm not sure if this is the only dialog with this problem, but
maybe evolution and all gnome need some "Fit in the screen" auditing. (And
maybe some automatic system for gnome 2.2)

The contact editor is 648x415 or so for me.  What font and locale are
you using?
Comment 2 Fernando Herrera 2002-04-27 14:58:33 UTC
Hum, I'm using now a 21" monitor, so never 800x600 resolution. I was 
using spanish locale and default fonts. I'll try again with that 
resolution to confirm you that it's fixed or not.
Comment 3 Fernando Herrera 2002-04-27 16:40:18 UTC
Tested on 800x600. It doesn't fit!. I attach a screenshot. Red Hat 
7.2 stock + gnome2 snapshots. Default font and spanish locale.

Hmm it looks like it's the translation's fault; it should maybe try
using shorter words or abbreviations...
