Description axelb 2008-08-07 13:28:26 UTC
The whole string is:
msgid: ~Excess size (left/right)
msgstr: "~Overskytende (venstre/høyre)"
When using po-files it resides in: starmath/source.po.
The comment is:   #: smres.src#RID_DISTANCEDIALOG.6.2.string.text

By the way, it may be just to long in English to, but we have not checked.

This dialogue can not be made bigger (why not? I see that in many boxes, they
should *all* be resizeable, what's the loss?)

And why are there length restrictions at all? If the strings is long, the box
should resize itself to fit it.

MRU->TL: could the spacing dialog be a little bit larger? 
Comment 3 thomas.lange 2008-08-13 07:08:52 UTC
TL->FL: Do we have a spec that needs to be changed?
Otherwise please just state a size that dialog should become.

~Overskytende (venstre/høyre)
has to fit, that is 29 characters, a minimum of 30 would be good.
Even better would be no limit, but autofit. Why can't that be done?
