Description length often ends in ellipses #559

  • SteeStea created this issue Oct 19, 2020

    I have an inline description for an option which seems to be just the right size that no matter how I set the size of the option, it results in the inline description being cut short with ellipses, even if its already been wrapped. I've tried "full", "double", to no avail. 




    L["altbuffeddesc"] = "Alt support only triggers the instructional whisper when the player is buffed (all players can still use alt support)"


    buffed = {
    order = 2,
    name = L["Enable only when player buffed"],
    desc = L["altbuffeddesc"],
    type = "toggle",
    width = "double",
    descStyle = "inline",
    set = function(_, val)
    SteaSummonSave.altbuffed = val
    get = function()
    return SteaSummonSave.altbuffed

    I just mocked up something like this, and I have no problems:


    It also wraps into the next line when I add more text, or make the window smaller.

    The page was displaying in the blizz options, don't know if that effects things. I have other long descriptions that have no issue. I suspect there is a relationship between window width and where the string would naturally end. I've noticed this happens when it looks like there's no reason for the ellipsis because there would be just enough space, and the line hasn't wrapped yet.
