Summary: Autoresize columns to prevent horizontal scrollbar
Platform: Fedora RPMs
AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
ReportedBy: kde dotancohen com
Version: 1.9.6 (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from: Fedora RPMs
In Kmail, Konqueror, and other KDE apps that have lists in columns, one can resize a column so that the total width of all the columns is larger than the available space. This causes a horizontal scrollbar to appear, and some information is always offscreen. I propose an option whereby as one column is widened, the others are shrunken such that there will be no need for a horizontal scrollbar. I envision three settings:
1) No Resize: Like the current behaviour, with no autoresize of other columns.
2) Intelligent Resize with Scrollbar: Only columns that have redundant whitespace (are too long for their content) are shrunken. When nothing else can be shrunken, the Scrollbar appears.
3) Intelligent Resize with no Scrollbar: Columns that have redundant whitespace (are too long for their content) are shrunken first. When the limit is reached, all columns are shrunken together such that no one column is severely truncated.
