      Bug on narrow dropdown fields?

      Post

           Not sure if this is a bug or normal behavior, but on some layouts when I have a dropdown field that is very narrow (e.g. 3px wide), when I click on it it opens up very far away from where the field is. The dropdown values are still connected to the field. I couldn't get a screen grab, but it looks something like this:

           X (field)
           X
           X
           X
           X
           X
           X
           X
           X
           XXXXXXX (dropdown values)
           XXXXXXX
           XXXXXXX

           Is there a way to prevent this other than making my field wider?

           Thanks,

           Michael

               At the moment, this is a known issue. I've pointed out this limitation myself in a posted issue report in Report an Issue.

               You'll need to make your field wider or use narrower values in your value list. Sometimes you can hide the extra width behind other layout objects such that this added width isn't visible unless you are actually selecting a value from the field.
