Description Henrik Andersson cendio 2018-03-21 12:50:49 CET
The status output (white output field") at bottom of main client window has a fixed size and text that would overflow will be cut. Currently we are choosing strings that fits the widget and verifies that all translations also does fit.

One possible solution could be to change this output to add ellipses to the string that does not fit, and use tooltip to show the complete string. This way we do not need to check if translations fits into this widget.

Currently both de and fr translations are affect by this issue, to test, select smart card as authentication and apply, then check the cropped string in output widtget.
