Description gareth foster 2005-09-25 10:48:23 UTC
Please describe the problem:
I installed Fedora for a friend who needs to use 800x600 as their resolution due
to eye sight troubles. They found that in this mode, the contact edit window is
too big for the screen, the Okay and Cancel buttons are hidden under the Panel
at the bottom.

Steps to reproduce:

Actual results:

Expected results:

Does this happen every time?

Comment 1 gareth foster 2005-09-25 10:48:58 UTC
it may actually be 640x480 thinking about it, but it is probably 800x600.
Comment 2 Elijah Newren 2006-10-09 06:49:00 UTC
Duplicate of bug 262546?  (Helpful comment in that bug about how to work around this issue)
Comment 3 Ian Weller 2009-07-06 19:19:32 UTC
Is there any movement on this?
Comment 4 Bharath Acharya 2010-03-25 05:10:12 UTC
No movement that I see.

Only workaround that I know of, Hold Alt + Mouse and move the dialog upwards so that you can see the Ok and Cancel buttons.

I would mark it as duplicate of bug 262546, and should be fixed as part of that bug really. Thanks for this report.

evo patch

for evolution;

Most of the hard work was done during changes for the express mode, when Michael Meeks added scrolled windows into each tab, thus I only changed the way how minimal size of the window is calculated. This makes the minimum size of the inner tab part to be 320x240 and the change will not be noticed by a user with large enough desktops.
