Easy fix?:No Copied to github as #:13585


Steps to reproduce:
  • Start new print composer
  • Add label
  • Change labels text from "Quantum GIS" to "Quantum GIS ruleZZZZ!!1!1!1!11"
  • "Dude, where's my text?!?"

Manual resizing works just fine, still it's not so easy to guess for novice users.

Hello, bug triage...

this is still the case for QGIS 2.13 master.

We should detect a change in the Label content and automatically resize the Label box, otherwise new content is not displayed by default (which is annoying).
