Many config-dialogs fail to work nicely with long attribute names

Hi Knime-devs,

 

Knime does not handle long variable names well. E.g. in the example below the list should widen when the dialog is resized. The sames holds for the selection comboboxes and the two panel multi-selection widget in Knime. Getting this problem solved, would be even more useful to my collegues and me.

Yepp, agreed. We will look into it. It seems as if most of the column filter panels (the two-panel multi-selection) are OK as they take appropriate width and/or show a scroll bar but the single column selection seems to be problematic. At least it could show a tooltip with the full column name.

I open a bug report. Thanks.
