Tested 5-03-99 Linux 2.0 build. When you select menu View|Default Character Set, the selection of Character set menu is not fit in the Windows. Below Korean (EUC-KR) is not shown. This is very critical for I18n. I do not know who I need to assigned to.
Putting on [PP] radar.
*** Bug 6041 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
As I mentioned in the duplicate bug, this seems to be a general GTK menu scroll issue. If there are other menu items which need to scroll, they will also fail to display entirely. For testing purposes, we need a resolution of this bug or an easy workaround. (I don't think editing and re-ordering .xul should be considered an easy workaround for testers.)
reassigning to saari.
Ramiro, how did you do the hierarchical menus for this case before? I don't see any GTK APIs that will accomodate this.
Here are Owen's comments on the issue, FYI: firstname.lastname@example.org (Chris Saari) writes: > So what is the best way to handle menus that have more items than can be shown > on the screen?

Unfortunately, this has simply never been implemented. It's not fundementally hard to do; its just that the people with the knowledge to do it have never really needed the feature, and it is just a bit to messy to do from an abstract feeling that it should be there. Patches would be appreciated (though GtkMenu* is rather scary code.) Otherwise, hopefully its something I'll have time to do at some time before GTK+-1.4. My personal fealing is that scrolling is better than continuation menus. Certainly better than continuation menus where you have to go all the way to the button of the screen to access the next column - like the Motif continuation menus. You could add continuation menus by hand as submenus, though it might not come out looking quite perfect; that's probably the easiest way to do it without modifying GTK+. Regards, Owen
i'll hop on the bandwagon for this one
I don't think this is going to make it for M7 no matter what, so I'm pushing it to M9.

I thought it is a practice to mark later bugs of the same problem as duplicates rather than the first one.
