Bug #9262

Report page cuts off columns, should overflow instead

The layout is too rigid on report pages. Columns that should overflow are instead cut off at the edge of the screen.

I’ve chosen to fix this issue by setting overflow: auto; on the parent div of the offending table. This is a short-term fix for a larger problem that should be addressed. The content pane has a fixed width of 80% of the window. Consequently, when dealing with non-breaking text (long path names, for instance), there is no way for the current layout to accomodate this. A long term fix would involve allowing the content pane to assume arbitrary width, expanding as necessary to fit non-breaking text. The entire window should scroll—not individual elements that exceed the current fixed (80%) width.

Other parts of dashboard suffer from a similar problem (e.g. the list of reports hides the overflowing portion of the table).
