Description Jonathan Marten 2013-11-10 16:14:36 UTC
Clicking on a Wikipedia placemark on the map brings up a really kewl and impressive looking Web 2.0-ish popup.  It would be even more impressive if it could somehow be positioned to fit in the window, so that clicking on a placemark near the right rise of the screen didn't put the popup out of sight.  See attached screen shot.

Alternatively, could showing the information, as it was some time ago, in a standalone window which can be moved and/or resized to the user's preference (neither of which can be done with the popup) be made a user option?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Display a map with Wikipedia placemarks.
2.  Click on one of those near the right side (or top, or bottom) of the window.

Actual Results:  
Popup appears but is partially hidden.

Expected Results:  
Requested information should be visible.

Also happens with current Marble trunk.

Dear Bug Submitter,

This bug has been stagnant for a long time. Could you help us out and re-test if the bug is valid in the latest version? I am setting the status to NEEDSINFO pending your response, please change the Status back to REPORTED when you respond.

Thank you for helping us make KDE software even better for everyone!

Now appears to be fixed - popup is limited to window area which scrolls if necessary.
