Summary06743: Saving grid column width in a settings cookie
Description

The following alterations inn css files will make the interface better suited for languages where tha translated strings are longer than the English ones.

E.g. are a lot of Norwegian strings longer than the English ones making the interface a bit ugly and truncated at some places.

In the adminstyle.css I have altered
#gview_displaysurveys th div {
font-size: 0.7em;
height: auto;
white-space: normal;
}

Font size is 0.7em <- 0.8 making the headers in survey list more readable.

And
th, p, div {
font-size: 7pt;
}

font-site 7 <- 10 making the headers in display participants more readable.

All headers in lists should be in a smaller text size to make longer text strings in translations looking better.

TagsNo tags attached.

I am not really sure what the problem is. Can you offer a screenshot?
I switch to Norwegian and the survey list captions look just fine to me.

And the second one from participans table. There you see the strings which are not translated as reported in another tracker.

One header is truncated Undersøkelse is what it should be

You do mean two headers to the right, don't you?
What browser is that? I doubt you tested this on all major browsers? It looks just fine here in FF16.

Oh, sorry it is from the right. It shows wrong in both Firefox, Safari and Chrome on Mac. Header text size is too big to show the full string in Norwegian.

Could this be a Mac issue? I'll test on a Windows 7 computer at work on Monday.

Just to clearify. The two strings in the header to the right should be: Tilgjengelige adgangsnøkler and Svarprosent

In the second screen shot it should be Undersøkelse and not Undersøke

Hello,

7pt is very very small ... and 0.7em can be very very small. I think it's really a bad idea to set a very small text.

Maybe you have a big screen, but mine are not. If i can't read LimeSurvey, i don't use LimeSurvey :)

I disagree :-) After using Limesurvey most of us already know what the headers are. But a new user have to read the whole menu text until they know LimeSurvey. The full text string is more imortant than a big text size. You really think 0.7 is too small?

One of the things I don't like in LS are some of the lists. There are too much info on screen and the user has sometimes to scroll to the right to read all info. I'm not sure how to solve this. One solution is to make some of the fields less wide. E.g. fields with value Yes No etc. The header is all to wide and the column values are narrow. Could some of the headers be replaced with icons and bubble help? The six fields to the right in the first screen shot is an example of wide header fields and narrow value fields.

In summary the text size is probable a matter of taste. I'd like to have them in a smaller size to enable the whole text to be displayed. What about other translations? I guess this is not only a problem in the Norwegian translation?

As said, I still have to see the problem. Could it be that you are using a custom font size/font DPI setting on Mac? Because that is most likely if ALL browsers are affected. what happens if you reduce the font size by using the browser zoom capabilities.

Reducing size in browser has no effect. Headers are still to long to be shown correct. I'll check this on Windows browsers on Friday.

Looks better in Explorer on Windows. Anyway, the first any-box ("alle" in Norwegian) in first screenshot is missing the arrows which should be present in a select dropdown. It exists in the second dropdown in the list.

The problem mentioned here is a problem in a lot of lists in LimeSurvey. The headers above columns are too narrow and the text is truncated. Either the text should be smaller or the columns should force to as wide as the headers are. I relly like the feature of choosing whichs columns to show. There should be a more dynamic way of spreading the selected columns to the full with of the screen. In some lists the columns are displayed at the left with lots og whihe space to the right.

Uploaded a screenshot to show what I mean with bad dynamic use of full width. The columns are truncated and the full width is not used.

You can always set the column width by dragging, but it is currently not saved. Scheduling this as development item.
