screenshot of too-wide dialog
See attached screenshot. This is the screen that pops up after you pick disks but you don't have enough space to install, and offers to let you reclaim space via the guided dialog or custom partitioning.
Propose NTH, this is pretty ugly for a commonly-used language.
I think we can solve this with a combination of shorter translations and setting word wrapping.
anaconda-18.29-1.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
For some reason the german dialog in my VM using the same resolution fits the screen quite nice in anaconda 18.28. But in 18.29, it's definitely even narrower.

dialog in 18.29
It all just depends on the resolution you happen to end up with. If I started qemu-kvm with "-vga std", I could reproduce the original complaint. Without those arguments, it fit just fine. So I guess we'll just go with the narrow dialog to be safe.

Discussed at 2012-11-14 blocker bug meeting. Accepted as a blocker: This is a minor translation and display issue and leads to better usability - a tested fix would be considered past freeze.
Confirmed fine in Beta RC1. 18.29.2-1 is going stable now, closing.
