#8298 new Bug report

PAPERCUT: "Default file exists action" dialog box is overstretched

Main menu/Transfer/Default file exists action...

The dialog box for "Default file exists action" is horizontally overstretched when using some languages. For example: using French and German languages stretches this dialog box horizontally across my screen and still some text is clipped.

On the other hand, some languages display OK. For example, Croatian language wraps fine inside the dialog box.

Might be a text wrapping issue?

This appears to be OS X specific, cannot reproduce it on other systems.

Please try the following:

  • Stop FileZilla
  • Delete the file ~/.filezilla/layout.xml
  • Start FileZilla
  • Open the dialog, is it still wrapped wrongly?

Something else to try:

  • After having the dialog open at least once, stop FileZilla
  • Edit ~/.filezilla/layout.xml
  • There should be a line containing something like "<Dialog name="DEFAULTFILEEXISTS" width="355" />"
  • Set the width to some other value that more likely reflects the intended width
  • Start FileZilla and open the dialog. Is it wrapped now?

layout.xml I have the default value to be width="484".

  • The first suggestion did not solve the problem.
  • The second suggestion is interesting. changing the width seems to apply only to the top text block (the one that reads: "Select default file exists action..."). The lower text block ("If using 'overwrite...") does not seem to be influenced at all by "width" value.
