Ticket #5808 (new defect)

Opened 4 years ago

Session information should prefer to wrap at word breaks and punctuation

Reported by: timeless Owned by:
Priority: trivial Component: GUI
Version: VirtualBox 3.1.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Mac OS X

Description

The session information dialog wraps text in a fairly annoying way. I understand that someone felt wrapping was important, but it'd be great if a word wrapping/sentence wrapping algorithm was employed instead of merely treating all characters as equal.

Steps:

  1. setup Windows 7 with a fairly typically setup
  2. install guest additions
  3. start Windows 7
  4. open the session information dialog
