Description Christian Muehlhaeuser 2019-03-17 17:50:07 UTC

Notifications are often shown with only the caption visible, the rest is being cut off vertically.

1. Unknown, it works 90% of the time, but every other notification is cut off.

Please attach a screenshot.
Comment 2 Christian Muehlhaeuser 2019-03-18 11:56:25 UTC
I'm afraid it's impossible for me to capture a screenshot of the issue. This would require me to keep spectacle running 24/7, and as mentioned in its bug reports, that brings my entire system to a halt after a couple of minutes.

Is there a way to change how long notifications will be shown, so I can start spectacle only when such a notification is shown?
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2019-03-18 13:57:41 UTC
Hmm, maybe Kai knows? Either way, hopefully the upcoming notifications rewrite will solve this. :)

Thanks Patrick, that's very helpful.
Comment 6 Christian Muehlhaeuser 2019-03-18 16:41:30 UTC
Patrick Silva: nice catch! That's pretty much what it looks like here, as well (for example for some notifications triggered by Firefox)
