Description illogic-al 2008-09-01 17:07:49 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.1.1)
Compiler:          gcc version 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5564) 
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources

Title says it all. The resize handle in the bottom left of the window (standard os x location for the native widget style) doesn't appear. Also doesn't show up if KDE's widget style oxygen is used (IIRC).

bah. qt bug. forgot that. 
Comment 2 illogic-al 2008-09-30 02:16:31 UTC
Actually this is probably a KDE bug. Normal Qt programs don't have this problem.
Re-assign to whatever part of KDE it should belong to. 
Comment 3 Mark Kretschmann 2008-09-30 10:08:45 UTC
Ok, reassigning.

Kate's got this problem too. Can a kate dev provide a patch for a possible fix. I be testin' yo.
Comment 7 Dominik Haumann 2009-05-20 10:10:24 UTC
There are two solutions for this.
1. Put a QSizeGrip into the sidebar at the bottom. This only works if the sidebar is visible.
2. Put a QSizeGrip into the statusbar, but the sidebar at the bottom is below, so the placement will be strange.

Solution 1 also has the flaw that if there are tabs in the right sidebar, that the size grip is then also not in the bottom right corner.

What solution is preferred? all of them suck ;)

This is bug is duplicate, see: #168809

I think most important is to make the window resizable. I do not care that much where the QSizeGrip sits. I think I would put it into the statusbar. Maybe it is possible to change the layout of the mainwindow a little bit to get the QSizeGrip always in the lower right corner? What is about swapping the position of the statusbar and the sidebar?
