I imagine it's one of the settings pages that is too high and causing this; if you still experience this issue, could you check which one?

As we can see in the video attached to this comment, several settings pages are too high.
Comment 7 Ahmad Samir 2022-03-02 12:51:15 UTC
Hmm, those ones are expanding to fill the whole available space, but can be made shorter (most of them); what I meant is a page where the contents fill the whole space, e.g. a page where there is a checkbox at the very bottom of the view, and causes the dialog's minimum size to be bigger than (the screen height - the panel height).
Comment 8 Ahmad Samir 2022-03-02 12:56:42 UTC
If you want to play with it, one idea would be to try running kate with gammaray:
- gammaray kate
- open the settings dialog in kate
- go to the Widgets tab in gammaray and search for kateconfigdialog

that should make it appear in the bottom part of the view in gammaray, you can check the height's, width's ...etc.
Comment 9 Christoph Cullmann 2022-03-02 20:02:51 UTC

This makes all pages scrollable.

Naturally even nicer would be "small" config pages, but I don't think that is easily feasible.
