[Zotero 7 Beta] Wrong width for the Title fields

edited 29 days ago
The 3 dots button (Open Context Menu) is using a fixed width that cannot be used by the Title in the Item Pane when not hovering over it with the mouse:

Same for the Book Title field:

  • The problem is that those fields wrap. The creator/URL/DOI fields are all single lines, so those fields can just be truncated on hover to make room for the buttons, but that doesn't work for multi-line fields — they would have to rewrap in a really unpleasant way.

    (The difference between Book Title in Book Section and Publication in Journal Article is a bug. Those are the same field, publicationTitle.)
  • Thank you for the explanation.
    I would probably be happy with a single line display of the Title field in the Info section, as I already see the full title in the header. But the developed view would still be useful if there is no header or for editing the title.

    NB: Is there any reason not to use the full width available for the header?

  • Width usage fixed now in beta 80
