Description Lawrence Lim 2005-05-11 03:47:31 EDT
Description of problem:
For all CJKI, users are required to select candidates from the candidate window.
In evolution, this candidate window is always positioned at 0,0. As a result, it
obstruct users from seeing what was typed earlier. It would be ideal if the
candidate window is positioned below the cursor.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
evolution-webcal-2.2.0-1
evolution-2.2.2-5
evolution-data-server-1.2.2-2
evolution-devel-2.2.2-5
evolution-data-server-devel-1.2.2-2
evolution-connector-2.2.2-3
evolution-debuginfo-2.2.2-5

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 evolution
2. Go to task list
3. Go to new task entry in the widget
4. Type "sushi", space, space 
5. observe rthe position of the candidate window
  
Actual results:
candidate window block the user from seeing what was typed earlier

Expected results:
candidate window positioned below the cursor

It looks as if the bug does not appears anymore as the text being typed is
visible. 
Lawrence, can you please confirm...

Thanks,
Mayank

Apparently you are confused. this is saying that the candidate window doesn't
follow at the bottom of the cursor.
Comment 11 Satyabrata Maitra 2006-06-20 08:14:45 EDT
