Bug report #18872
Symbol Selector Window 'overflows' the screen on small resolutions

At a resolution of 1280x720, the symbol selector window tends to be larger than the screen when the symbol fill type is set to 'SVG Fill', as seen in the picture below. It is impossible to scale the window to fit when the categorization type is set to 'single symbol' or 'categorized'. However, it is possible to scale the window when it overflows if the categorization type is set to 'rule-based'.

Sorry to not have replied to you earlier.
Is this issue still available in 3.2?
Hello. The issue is still present in 3.2. In fact it seems to have worsened, as resizing the window now results in it disappearing completely and locking me out of the program, forcing me to force-quit it via task manager.

This is still a real issue for users of small screens. I'm running into this problem using QGIS 3.2.3 on Windows 10, 14-inch laptop with a max resolution of 1366x768. This is definitely a regression from 2.8. The workaround of using rule-based was successful.

I confirm the issue, just tested in QGIS 3.5.0-Master.
I'm not sure this can help but, while the issue happens with the "Symbol selector" window, it doesn't in the "Edit rule" window, accessed through the menu Properties (see the two short animated gifs attached).
