text ellipsizing unnecessarily
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I feel like I made a ticket about this before, but I can't find it?

rEFL1624417d9137b87826962e431d08dc591f83d5e5 changed text ellipsizing and now sometimes text randomly stops for no r...

mostly noticeable in notifications where the (wrapped) second line in a notification message will sometimes ... after a few characters even though it isn't nearly as long as the first line. I've been locally reverting this commit for months and the issue still hasn't been resolved.

I think this is less noticeable with the default theme because there are two textblock parts: one which wraps and one which doesn't. I guess this is so that the visible one never wraps using the broken <1.20 text sizing algorithm? In a theme which only has a wrapping part, I would expect it to continually wrap instead of ellipsizing, as that has been the behavior for 10+ years.

Thanks for reporting.
Can I reproduce this with elementary_test -to notification?

You can reproduce it with plain notify-send if not using the default theme, e.g.,
