Description Martin Koller 2013-08-26 11:31:54 UTC
When creating a new contact or editing an existing one a dialog with the details is opened.
This dialog has much too narrow fields for the Name and  for the phone entries.
See attached screenshot

Reproducible: Always

.. and the "Photo" button is overlapping the bottom line of the group box
Comment 3 Allen Winter 2013-09-17 17:51:01 UTC
You should be able to resize the dialog to your preference and that new size will be saved/restored now (since 4.11.1)

we could also make the default initial size larger. currently set to 800x500.  maybe 900 wide would be better.
Comment 4 Martin Koller 2013-09-17 20:51:53 UTC
The size does not get restored here (4.11.1). Is it in 4.12 ?
Probably also the stretch factors should give more importance to the Name Group Box over the Internet Group Box.
Comment 5 Laurent Montel 2013-10-06 07:13:37 UTC
I confirm we can save/restore. (47ddd28a459ffab062da9a2bda15c566528b87a2)
Comment 6 Martin Koller 2013-10-06 12:02:34 UTC
ok, restoring works now in 4.11.2.
Still 2 open issues:
1.) The default width for mentioned fields is too narrow
2.) the "Photo" button is overlapping the bottom line of the group box
Comment 7 Laurent Montel 2013-10-06 12:13:57 UTC
Ok will look at default size this week.
