Description Mircea Kitsune 2013-04-26 12:24:38 UTC
I recently posted my belief that several plasma widget have size limits which are too big, making them difficult or impossible to use due to the space they take on the desktop. http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=73&t=110386 As advised, I'm making a ticket for each plasmoid which I believe to have excessive size limits which should be lowered.

This one is for the Shelf widget. While in its case the size limit is pretty sane and ok, I believe it could be made a bit smaller horizontally. Here is a screenshot showing its minimal size... you can see there's wasted space to the right and overall it could get tinier without breaking anything: http://i42.tinypic.com/2hzmpae.jpg

Reproducible: Always

I'd like a comment as to why this was set as "RESOLVED WONTFIX". The widget still has a rather restrictive horizontal size limit, despite the text just reaching half of the widget and the other half remaining empty.
