History

#1 Updated by Gavin Macaulay - almost 13 years ago

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

Fixed in svn 2b75117c (SVN r7336) (replaced a Q3 widget by the Qt4 version)

#2 Updated by Steven Bell - almost 13 years ago

  • Status changed from Closed to Feedback
  • Resolution deleted (fixed)

2b75117c (SVN r7336) doesn't completely fix the problem. Instead of overlapping other widgets, the scale input box just gets smashed. See the second attached image.

#3 Updated by Steven Bell - almost 13 years ago

I also just noticed that the frame checkbox gets squeezed before the spacer does, which means that it is usually not displayed.

If you make the composer window taller, the widgets will all appear correctly (not that this fixes the underlying problem :).

Replying to [comment:4 g_j_m]:

If you make the composer window taller, the widgets will all appear correctly (not that this fixes the underlying problem :).

On displays 1024x768 and smaller you can't even even make the window big enough for the scale to be visible.

I have attached an image (new.png) that illustrates a possible solution to the problem of the map composer details pane being too tall (cf to old.png). If this is acceptable to us, it's probably best to make the same change to all the panes in the map composer. Comments?

#7 Updated by Steven Bell - almost 13 years ago

Looks good to me. It is probably a good thing to do to some or all of the other composer option panes as well.

Fixed in svn f4a505d5 (SVN r7452).

Also tidied up other map composer detail panes to use less vertical space.
