Description Ken Frank 2007-07-05 18:46:20 UTC
see attached gifs for resize issues with some security manager window - 
this is using pseudo localized with 14 pt font on solaris -
user should not need to resize

for textfields or scrolling list where keys are listed - its true if there is a horizontal sbar,
user needs to use it and its not really resize issue  - but in this case, its so narrow that it
really still needs resizing to use it even with sbar.

Ken, please report the real I18N issues only.
The dialogs cannot be designed to fit 3-times longer text translations then the english originals.
Comment 7 Lukas Hasik 2007-07-10 13:26:21 UTC
what about to provide scrollbars when the panel doesn't fit to the dialog?
Comment 8 Ken Frank 2007-07-10 15:58:18 UTC
Adam, I don't agree.  Yes, some of these msgs/labels are longer but this is also about user being
allowed to use a larger font size, even without having pseudo localized labels.

And from what we have seen in past, when coding was done to allow dynamic resizing, using layout
manager features, the resize issues were solved in any case.

Also, there are at least 2 gifs in which the problem is that not all line shows vertically, and that
is not related to how long a pseudo localized message is.

As to this not being real i18n issue - you are right in that resizing is not all i18n per se;
and all QE teams test for resize, its just when we find it doing i18n testing, we put the I18N in summary
and keyword; I'll remove the keyword to be more clear.

--> Please consider reopening this, or at least discuss with Lukas.

Lukas, scrollbars will work.
