Description Jonathan 2011-06-14 10:01:44 EDT
Description of problem:
export pdf window (and possibly other dialogues) lower buttons are outside of the usable desktop on my widescreen laptop, and probably on many other users as well as this is a standard resolution (768 pixels height). As the buttons on the lowest row are outside of the desktop, I can't press them. Only workaround so far is to just press enter as the write pdf option (or what it is called, I can't see the button) is defaulted.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open libreoffice writer in a resolution that has height=768 or less
2.select file -> export as pdf
3.bottom of "pdf options window" is outside of the window
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
resize window or add a scrollbar. To me, resizing this window seems preferable but that solution is not bulletproof against smaller resolutions so you might as well do both.

yeah, really need to get proper dialog layout going. In the interim I'll see about adjusting that dialog.
