text wrapping in new FP

Besame's Avatar

Just saw this - guess the user name is unusually long - but isn't there some auto-break that would put the full word on a second line instead of this odd break? Screen shot attached - was FP at ~ 8:08:28 pm

    Hello, and thanks for asking.
    The issue of very long usernames breaking oddly has been ticketed and fixed, but in a different context. We'll take a look at other display widths/positions.
    Do you have more specifics about the screen width you had at the time? And am I correct that you saw it within one of the Community stories sections, in the top row (the larger display)?
    Appreciate your help with troubleshooting.

    I saw it using my MacBook Air with Catalina 10.15.5 using Chrome 83.0.4103.116.
    It was the far left box second row in the first section of Community (not
    the More Community that is lower on the page). I saw another instance of
    same problem with different user name this weekend but not 100% sure where
    - think it also was Community and I'm certain it was the far right box
    second row. Same MacBook.

    If I see it again, do you want me to take a bigger screenshot and attach it

    Oh, sure, that would be great. This may be enough to go on but more documentation never hurts. It's also good to know what sort of zoom you had, if any, and if your screen was full width. We've had some interesting details to work out with display widths.

    The sort of screenshot that would give more clues would show this story thumbnail relative to the others near it.

    Thanks again!

    Oh the zoom issue may be pertinent - I probably had 110% as that's my
    normal for DK. After reading your reply, however, I went to check what my
    screen zoom was and it was 110% and there was another of the user name wrap
    problems (full screen shot). So after taking that screenshot I reduced zoom
    to 100% and the problem remained (screenshot of just that section).

    Thanks so much! Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. This is very helpful, getting this level of detail.

    Sorry not to have circled back until now. I do see a ticket for this issue, so I am wondering whether it is still a bug for you. Thanks for your update, whenever you have a chance to reply.

    Good timing! I read this and looked back at the FP and saw one example
    immediately. I don't remember if I've seen others in the recent past, life
    is too full of crazy stuff for my memory to hang onto text wrapping snafus.
    The one in the screenshot attached was in the More Community Stories
    section. Every section above that one was okay and I saw some long titles
    that took 3+ lines but had no weird breaks in words. MacB Air Catalina
    Chrome (all the most up to date versions).

    OK! Well, not OK, but still helpful to have the report w/evidence.

    You're still using a 110% zoom? Might be an interesting challenge for a developer. We'll see what we can replicate, too.

    Thanks for the update.

    Likely 110% yes - sorry I forgot about that aspect.

    Final (?) update - since the last message, I began changing my zoom to 100%
    if I saw the weird text wrap and every time (4 or so) it resolved
    immediately. I don't need the zoom for the new FP text, it's a browser
    setting for sites with smaller text. So I now unzoom for DK.
