Summary: "Driver Settings" tab: lower pane can only show 3
lines, has fixed height, should be resizeable (better
Platform: SuSE RPMs
AssignedTo: kde-print-devel kde org

Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from: SuSE RPMs
KDEPrint/kprinter gives CUPS users access to set print joboptions by displaying the respective features as represented in the drivers PPD file. This happens on the "Driver Settings" tab.
The tab is divided into two panes: top and bottom. The top pane allows to select/highlight a specific feature (ex: "PageSize"), which makes the lower pane display all available values for the feature (ex: A3, A4, Letter), so the user can select it.
The lower pane is fixed in height; it can display only 3 items at one time. However, some features do have more than 10 choices, and the scrolling can be very annoying. Even if the dialog is expanded vertically to the full height of the screen, this does not change the height of the lower pane.
Make the border between the top and lower pane moveable (make the lower pane resize-able/expand-able).
A little bit more usability at this spot of the interface.
