Hi,

When initially creating a table and creating only one field, the column editor (AJAX popup) is too large and is scrolled mostly off of the screen. See the screenshot for details. I think it should only be as wide as needed in the first place, it should definitely not need two sets of scrollbars, and should be properly centered so I don't need to grab and drag it over just to read the labels.

My resolution in this case is 1024x768, FireFox 3.6.something and Internet Explorer 8

    Isaac,
    is this something you observe only in 3.5? If not, please indicate in the Group a prior version where this happens.

    According to git bisect, b923bb3fbbb2260ddf2f3aeb5e580c037ff1e637 is the first bad commit.

    That means it would have been a part of 3.4.0-beta1. I'm using the default pmahomme theme.

    On a larger screen resolution (1920x1080 for instance), the dialog is centered in the main frame and there's no side-to-side scrolling needed, although I still have to scroll up and down inside the popup dialog which feels awkward. In this case, as I'm sure you've seen, the dialog is centered and is sized at perhaps half window size; so the first thing I do is drag it up and down so it is resized to fill the browser window.

    Isaac,
    did you try the current development version? There have been improvements in this matter.

    Yes, Marc, thanks for checking. It does seem much better in the current 'master'. I still have to scroll vertically, but at least I only have one set of scrollbars this time and the dialog fits much better in the frame.

    I suppose this can be closed, then, which I -think- I've done. Thanks!
