Title and tags don't realign on the left when the editor window is maximised

Postby Clairvaux » Sun Oct 29, 2017 12:58 pm

Consider the following scenario :

The editor window is stacked on the side of the screen, and adjusted to a narrow vertical strip in order to leave a wide area for the main software window the user is currently working on.

The user edits the title of the note, adding words at the end, and he adds tags. In many cases, the title and tag list will scroll to the left, hiding the beginning of the title and tag list, because the corresponding fields are too narrow.

So the user maximises the editor window in order to see the whole title and the complete tag list, either by clicking on the top right icon, or by dragging the window.

He expects the title and tag list will then be aligned on the left in the maximised window, allowing him to work more easily.

However, what happens instead is the long title and long tag list stay where they were before, relative to the field frame : they remain partially hidden, although now the title field and tags field are wide enough to accommodate the complete text. The title and tags fail to realign themselves on the left. The pointer needs to be brought manually in both fields, and the contents scrolled rightwards, for all the text to appear.

Thanks for the report, and was able to reproduce.
The question is, since it is a strictly UI-thing, does it really make sense to fix this in the old UI, when the new UI is just around the corner?
I think it would be better to make sure it works correctly in the new UI (the first release of which is currently planned for April 2018).
Do you agree?

Absolutely. There's no hurry. This can easily be mitigated for the time being, and it's better to polish the new interface !

I guess "polish" is not the word I'd use right now.. "make work for basic use cases" is more appropriate :) But we still have some time ;)
