2518708 - ToDo Tile - Showing Different Text in Different Browser / Portuguese Language


The text translated into Portuguese is appearing clipped in the Performance ToDo portlet depending on the internet browser.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login into BizX
  2. The ToDo porlet with portuguese text is clipped depending on the internet browser


Figure 1. This is how the text is appearing on Mozila Firefox


Figure 2. This is how the text is appearing on Google Chrome


Figure 3. This is how the text is appearing on Internet Explorer


The texts for each tile is actually the same in all 3 cases - the wrapping behavior is different.

  • FF: will wrap text on a forward slash "/"
  • Chrome/IE: only wraps on spaces
  • IE: Does not show the ellipsis "..."


This is expected behavior - if a more predictable line wrapping is needed, then the ToDo category name from Manage Homepage admin screen should be altered in order to have spaces in the translation into Portuguese language so that it might be better for wrapping.
