Description rnhainsworth 2008-05-04 12:50:22 UTC
When a note is inserted into a text document, the note's author is included. On
my box, the author's name is in a font size that is larger than the note itself
and for long names, it tends to crowd out the text.

Since authors are repeated, but the note text is important, I would prefer the
note author's name to be smaller than the note's text.
Comment 1 Regina Henschel 2008-05-04 13:16:52 UTC
On my machine the time beneath the author name is cropped. Reason seems to be
same, font size being to large.

@regina: Thanks for reporting. As far as I know, the layout inside the Notes
will change until OOo 3.0 final. I hope that this can be considered.
@rnhainsworth: Thank you, too. Your behavior seems to be a duplicate of issue
#85389 and is more worse with larger UI fonts (unwanted line break).

@mod: 120dpi fonts are kind of accessibility related and therefore presumably
mandatory. Could you please decide how to proceed?

Changed summary.

- as a short term fix for 3.0, I made the size of the meta information font
fixed, should be nice now on linux as well as with larger windows fonts

- very long names as well as larger fonts for accessibility reasons should be
possible as well, but for this to work, the layout algorithm of the notes has to
be adapted first to be able to handle variable meta area height. Once this is
done, the other issues are easy and fast to fix

Comment 6 rnhainsworth 2008-05-07 07:49:53 UTC
As noted in issue #85389 general solution is to crop long names adding ... to end

What do I download to see new behaviour? I dont want to compile.
Comment 7 max.odendahl 2008-05-07 08:16:16 UTC
this will be fixed in, so
once you see status integrated there, you can try a developer snapshot

Reset assigne to the default "".
