Description Dotan Cohen 2012-06-26 12:46:55 UTC
Currently Digikam has a minimum size for the sidebars. Anything thinner and the sidebar collapses. This value is about three times to big, it leaves a huge wasted space when I am trying to tag photos and leave the tag sidebar open. Please reduce the minimum size for the sidebar to about one third or even one quarter of its current value.

Thank you!

Is this entry valid for digiKam 4.0.0? Is it solved?
Comment 3 Cruceru Calin-Cristian 2014-02-24 12:14:52 UTC
I don't know what was the minimum size in 2.6, but certainly in 4.0.0 it is still a little bit too large this minimum size.
Comment 4 caulier.gilles 2014-02-24 13:18:37 UTC
Size do not depand only of widget size. Text embeded in widget (as with label) has an effect to widget size, especially with translations. 

Developers test in English only. Applying translation to GUI will have effect to widget layout. Translators must take a care about

I'm having a hard time getting Digikam 4.2 installed, but on 4.1 the issue is still valid. Thanks, Gilles!

Fix sidebar horizontal layout to give preference width of canvas (image editor) and stack (album-view).
When a sidebar is collapsed, if the opposite sidebar is open, the central view strech the free space instead to reajust the width of visible sidebar.
