GNOME file selection / file save dialog too small
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:36 EST
Description of problem:
When opening, selecting or saving a file the dialog presented's dimensions are
way too small. If you're lucky, you can only see 3 or 4 folders at a time. I'm
constantly having to resize the dialog to see
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Most of the time - Sometimes after a resize it will 'remember' for the session,
but I have to resize on my next login anyways.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any program that uses a open/file selection/save dialog
2. Use that dialog
3. Observe it's size
Size of the dialog is very small
For it to be larger, as it used to be in 2.12 so that I can see many folders and
files at once, not just one or two.
I'm using some developmeng Gnome packages, but it's been occuring since the
original FC5 2.14 packages came out.
Hmmm... I did some more testing, and it seems it's only one type of file dialog
- The one without "Browse for more folders". I can recall it happening several
times in gedit as I was editing files in /etc/...
Any news on this issue?
It's still occuring in Gnome application, gedit 2.16 and OpenOffice to mention a
Seems to be better in gnome-desktop-2.18.2-1.fc7
