Summary15057: Translation screen not working correctly when there are long question text
DescriptionThe quick translation screen does not render correctly with long question text. I have questions that include long scripts and these are causing the screen to enter quick translations to be displayed in a way that is unworkable with the target language box being too small and the original text box taking over all the screen see images attached.
TagsNo tags attached.
Complete LimeSurvey version number (& build)3.17.7+190627
I will donate to the project if issue is resolvedNo

Can you provide a sample lss with only this group and question (you copy your broken survey and delete all not related group)

Here is part of the survey where the Quick Translation seems to go wrong .. I have removed all the other parts of the survey (it is very long) and the failure occurs with these 2 groups.

Maybe we need to totally remove all tag ?
At minimum : filter it :)

I have found out what the issue is with this ... it is that the screen is controlled by the length of the question text.

I had an equation question in there with a lot of conditions ...
Q2=If(Q1_A=="Y",1,if(Q1_B=="Y",2 ....... if(Q1_Z=="Y",26}}}}}}}}}} etc.

This seems to have been interpreted as one word and there was no split to adjust the screen size in term of columns... adding in a newline in the source code has corrected the issue.
