Description

As the calculated size of the line, depends of the size of the panel (resizable) is wrong (too of some ... <unable to translate, in printing in french the length unit "point">).
Then the line is always too long of a few for the panel (words or half of words cut before splitting the line).

This makes the blog edition unusable in normal conditions because to edit a text we have to make horizontal scroll continuously.

Analysis : the calculation of the length of line written in text editors is always complex. Generally today there is no problem, but the system which is behind editors is very complex to take in account all display configurations.

(nota : For my own I had developed some years ago a draw system - for engineering, Computer Assisted Drawings - system for windows displaying HPGL2 language drawings with fonts conversion from HPGL2 fonts system to True type, then I know well in details the whole problem)

With this problem, I can't let use the tikiwiki 5.3 by my bloggers.

So I have written a warning take care "sorry very difficult to use"

Solution

An element of solution is to always draw into the editor the rectangle which size is the writable zone (the exterior of the zone is light grayed colored then the user see always the frame area from which the text can't anyway overflow). Then if he doesn't see these grey frame he immediately by reflex look to the scroll bar.
After the problem become that this frame should be included into the external shape.
If well manage we get a little margin which correspond into sophisticated text editors to the "inside printer margin zone".
