Description David Faure 2010-12-17 19:41:15 UTC

---- Reported by kollix@aon.at 2010-06-26 11:26:13 ----

Version:           2.2 (using Devel) 
OS:                Linux

This is one of the "last mile" things in kword.
When you start kword for the first time, a template selection window is shown,
but the sub selection area of a template category (the list in the middle) is much too narrow (see screenshot). I can only see the icons (which, btw, look ugly and blurred), but the text its hidden.

Reproducible: Always

Expected Results:  
The middle column must be as wide as the widest text. There is plenty space available, it just needs to be used ;-)

OS: Linux (i686) release
Compiler: gcc

openSuse 11.2, KDE 4.5 beta2, koffice2-kword-2.2.0-8.10.i586

There are more problems than just the splitter positions, I've been working together with some other people to write a better version.
