Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1007720
Too many scrollbars
Last modified: 2016-07-31 21:10:03 EDT
Description of problem:
Designer sometimes displays 2-3 sets of scrollbars that need to be adjusted to make things properly visible. This is especially visible with a smaller screen / resolutions.
This makes working with it unpleasant and very cumbersome.

too many scrollbars
This is indeed quite annoying but for technical reasons might not be that easy to fix short-term. So I'm adding devel_ack+ but devel_ack- for the beta blocker, to give us some time to investigate this.
Agreed that this is a bigger issue that needs to be addressed after Beta.
This should be mainly driven mainly by UX team lead by Catherine.
Internal Whiteboard: Beta Blocker → Blocker
Not critical for Beta, but need to address for GA
fixed in designer master and 6.0.x branches.
I have problem with this commit:
You just removed one scroll bar. Now I am not able to scroll to some elements if I resize Problems panel.
Please see attached video (screen resolution is 1280x1024):
- 1 - I try to resize a canvas
-> Problems panel has to be really small to see a decrease/increase button
- 2 - I want to see problems in Problems panel and modify a process
-> Now Problems panel is readable but I am not able to scroll to gate.
- 3 - I want to add some elements from shape library
-> I am not able to scroll to REST task. I have to resize Problems panel
- 4 - I want to see simulation parameters for selected node
-> I have to collapse all sections or resize Problems panel
- 5 - I want to see all properties for User task
-> No idea how to do it. At least one section must be collapsed
- 6 - I want to see a task form editor
-> I have to move editor to see some parts but I never see whole editor
You can see that designer changes its width but designer never changes its height (based on resize a panel).
I am not sure if this fix is the first step or if it is a bad way. Please can you write some more information. Title "Too many scrollbars" is not enough.
This issue needs system changes.

Video - work with designer (ER5)
the tabs on the bottom of the editor were hovering over the designer horizontal scrollbar. the fix was to readjust the height of the editing window so they show again. Please retest (fix in designer master and 6.0.x branches).
Tested with ER7, resolution 1280 x 800.
Please fix Simulation screen as well. I'll add a screenshot shortly - you can see that the panel with Process Simulation Results (graphs) itself and the side panels with Simulation Info and Simulation Graphs tree have the same problem that Soňa described in comment 9. These panels are bigger than what the Designer can display and the relevant scrollbars and a part of the content are hidden.
The fix should be the very similar/same as mentioned in comment 11.

ER7 - simulation
This issue is still valid. Simulation tab has not been fixed yet.
sim fix in designer master and 6.2.x branches. please also note the small change of simulation graphs panel is above the simulations info panel now (in case it matters for tests or something).
Unfortunately, this issue has to be assigned, because there is same problem which was mentioned in comment #9.
My opinion is that it was broke by bz 1159238.
This commit  contains a refactoring of DesignerView class.
You are absolutely correct - with the changes of the mentioned bz we had to add a little more code to properly set the height of the designer canvas.
The fix for this is in designer master and 6.2.x branches.
I can confirm that all items in panels are available (Process Modelling Tab and Simulation Results tab).
Simulation Results tab has some problem with scroll bars but this issue will be present in a new issue (bz 1193825).
