Subject [jira] [Updated] (DRILL-3447) Doc. pages don't let text wrap at certain widths
Date Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:44:05 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-3447?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Daniel Barclay (Drill) updated DRILL-3447:
------------------------------------------
    Description: 
Although the documentation pages sometimes are styled to not prohibit browsers from wrapping
text to fit, at some browser window widths, when the outline appears on the left, the styling
reverts to fixed-width formatting--but uses a width that is wider than the available space,
meaning that part of the page is not visible without horizontal scrolling.  See the attachment.

Why does the styling switch to a fixed width in the first place?  If we want to prevent the
lines of text from becoming so long that they are hard to read, set the max-width property,
not the width property.  Then we don't block the browser's usual ability to try to fit the
content into the user's chosen browser window width.
