Print Window Size in 3.4.1

Postby volcomer » Wed Apr 24, 2013 1:49 pm

Deployed 3.4.1 and discovered to my horror that the print window just went full retard. Anyone know how to fix the "6K pixel wide print window problem"? Seems that someone forgot to input a linechange for the text in the window form.

Somewhere in /Tools /Options (possibly /Tools /Options /OpenOffice.org : General, but I'm not on a Windows machine so cannot check) there is a setting to use OpenOffice Print dialogs in place of Windows dialogs. This might be worth trying.

Well there is one to change the dialogs for Open/Save, but nothing along those lines for the Print Dialogue

I am running the Norwegian-ish translated version with some tweeked xcd files to set default file types aso. and I have a suspicion that the error is in the translated text for the dialogue. The text under the colour thingy in the print dialogue is just one VERY long line.

Confirmed as a translation version issue. Installed the default English version and this bug was gone. Does anyone have a fix for this?

The only thing I can think of is the old cure: find the string in the code and change some characters to a Linefeed and Carriage Return (or as appropriate), at cost of corrupting or abbreviating one word to allow them to fit.
