The layer properties window is too wide for 1024 px screens; it can be resized, but the text does not wrap

do we really still support resolutions like 1024px?

#4 Updated by Alexander Bruy almost 8 years ago

Hmm, just opened layer properties dialogs (both vector and raster) in Qt Designer and they are less then 1024 px wide. Vector properties is 904x588 and raster properties is 789x593. Also I can resize them.

The default is not really usable. When resized, as mentioned, the content does not resize, and is difficult to use.
IMHO the content can fit perfectly on a small screen (e.g. the slider can easily be shrunk and remains usable), it's just the layout that should be adjusted.
I acknowledge this is part of a larger issue: all the GUI should be adapted to small screens also.
