lazreport preview and design windows width
« on: October 24, 2012, 08:53:02 pm »
Hi

I'm currently using Lazarus 1.0.2 / Linux amd64 / GTK2 / Ubuntu 12.04 / Gnome 3. I have no other machine available to try to reproduce under other environments. 

When I execute  ShowReport to preview a report, the Window has a height a little less than screen height, but a width of only about 20 pixels !  An A4 report is obviously not visible. Same occurs for design window.

It is possible to right-click in the Top Left corner and to maximize or resize to make the window larger and the report visible, but I can't request this from my users !

I never noticed this on my previous system using 0.9.30 and Lazarus for Linux 32 bits, and made no change to the code.

Is it a known bug ? Is there a workaround ?

Thanks

I've seen the same on Linux (GTK2 IIRC). I'd suggest raising a bug in the bugtracker so it can be fixed.

Ok, I'll do it.
This problem doesn't occur in Windows - Win64.
