Ticket #148 (assigned defect)

Opened 4 years ago

Last modified 4 years ago

synopsis tab is too wide (so that it cannot be closed)

Reported by: JohannesWaldmann Owned by: MtnViewMark

Description

if the functions's types contain long lines (see ticket #147), then the synopsis tab is wider than the window, so its control (for closing) is invisible.

That actually is how it was intended to operate. You can click anywhere in the synopsis drawer to close it.

The drawer does sprout a horizontal scroll bar (look at the bottom) so you can scroll to see all the definitions.

I'm open to better ideas on how to handle long types in the synopsis drawer. The only other idea I can think of is letting them wrap, then use hanging indent to keep them clear.

I have the same problem in the documentation of my usb-safe library.

Replying to MtnViewMark:

Unfortunately I'm unable to scroll the scrollbar to the far left in both Chromium and Firefox.

Or align the synopsis to the left and let long lines flow out the window at the right. You can then use the scrollbar to scroll to the right to bring them into view.
