Text fails to wrap properly in articles

Recommended Posts

I've always had this problem with the announcement articles (such as the 1.0.5 release announcement article), however usually it only happens when I zoom in so I can read the text easier. This time it happened at 0% zoom.

This is a serious usability issue. The text needs to be able to wrap around properly so that those who require larger text will be able to zoom in and still be able read the article.

Previously, I had thought the problem was that the text overflow property was set so that it would horizontally scroll when the text was too wide, however there isn't even a horizontal scroll option this time. I'm not entirely certain what the problem is, but taking a gander at some of the CSS shows a lot of "white-space:nowrap" and "text-overflow:hidden" properties, either of which could be contributing to this issue, though I haven't been able to track down exactly which one is being applied to the article container.

I'm using Firefox 42.0 on Windows Vista, 1280x1024 resolution, btw.

Edit: Just tried it in Chrome and IE, and it happens with both of them, too.

Scroll to the bottom of the page. On the bottom left corner there is a drop down that says "default style". Change this to "default mobile style" and the word wrap will work even with the page zoomed in.

Just SQUAD being consistent in their distribution of bugs it seems. Time and money to do over but not to do right the first time. With spin doctors in charge what do we expect.

Thanks for the tip. :)

It really shouldn't be necessary to have to change to mobile view, which brings its own set of issues inherent to that format, but at least there's a workaround for now...
