Description Máirín Duffy 2010-08-18 22:56:00 UTC
Created attachment 439536 [details]
horizontal scrollbar in abrt details dialog

Description of problem:
Hi! I noticed in abrt when on the 'provide additional details' screen that as I was typing out some comments in the second large text field, the field continued to scroll horizontally seemingly into infinity even though the text field looked to be somewhere between 7-10 lines tall.

Would it be possible to make the text auto-wrap and only scroll vertically, never horizontally? (look at the bugzilla description field right here to see how I think it should work :) )

When users write text I think they often like to review the text they've already written and revise as needed, but it's difficult if you can only see one line at a time. Having to enter a carriage return is actually an extra effort that most text dialogs don't require you to do, so I think abrt would be more polished with this small change!
