3317484 - Text Being Cut Off on Buddy Comments - Onboarding


The text entered on "personal note to buddy" is being cut off when using a lower resolution.

As you can see for the following example, the word "Testing" at the right side of the text box is being cut is a half:

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