Changing gedit font size affects line numbering size, but not width, cuts off numbers
Last modified: 2015-02-17 11:33:33 EST
Description of problem:
When the font size is increased in gedit (either interactively or in the preferences), the line numbering size is increased to match. However, the line-number strip width remains constant, so at larger font sizes the line numbering becomes cut off.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a file in gedit
2. Enable "Display line numbers" in Preferences > View, if necessary
3. Increase font size significantly, either in Preferences or (if "Text Size" plugin is enabled) by repeatedly pressing Ctrl and +
Line numbers grow larger, and are increasingly cut off by the window border.
Line number strip dynamically resizes to fit width of its contents.
The wrong-size line numbering strip (which happens in both directions; if the font is decreased it remains far too wide) occurs on a per-tab basis when multiple files are open, and persists in each tab until a resize of the strip occurs. Such a resize can be triggered (for the current tab only) by increasing or decreasing the line count in the open file by an order of magnitude (e.g. from 995 to 1001 lines). Note that the nominal width of the strip is 2 digits, so the shortest length transition that will cause a resize is from 99 to 100 lines, or vice versa.
Added my report to existing upstream GNOME bug #687517
Updating GNOME bug ID, initial was closed as duplicate of this replacement.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
