Some QGIS dialogs have bad looking widgets mainly due being too small or too large.

"Create new WMS connection" all input fields are too wide, no space between border and widget; Same applys to "Create new PostGIS connection".

Settings->Options->Appearance->Selection color: widgets showing used color are too far to right. It looks like selection color is related to background color. Look at "Project properties" for good color selection widget layout example.

"Project properties"->Projection: widget showing detailed information about selected projection is always too small. It should be able to show at least full 3 rows, as 2 rows contain SRID's.

"Area measure tool" dialog also could be a bit wider, as normally there fit only areas smaller than 999 (1000 km2 will be too wide for default dialog width).

OS: GNU/Linux x86

Done in SVN e2406654 (SVN r5762)

Have a look and see if they're okay.

The lack of space in the wms and postgis dialogs looks to be caused by a bug in qt4, but I've hopefully worked around that.

#2 Updated by Gavin Macaulay - about 17 years ago

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from Open to Closed

I think that these are resolved, so I'll close it.
