Bug ID: 401819
Summary: Notification text cut off if too long. No possibility
to copy text or enlarge the window
Product: plasmashell
Version: 5.14.4
Platform: Other
OS: Linux
Status: REPORTED
Severity: normal
Priority: NOR
Component: Notifications
Assignee: ***@privat.broulik.de
Reporter: ***@gmx.net
CC: plasma-***@kde.org
Target Milestone: 1.0

Screenshot of the notification popup, which demonstrates the issue.

SUMMARY

If the notification text is too long, it is cut off and ends with "..."
It is not possible to either to enlarge notification window nor to copy the
text by e.g. a context menu.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Open the Konsole
2. Execute $ notify-send "This is a very long text, which won't fit into the
notification window!"
3. Observe the result both in the notification pop up and notification plasmoid
window

OBSERVED RESULT
"This is a very long text, which won't fit into the no..."
"This is a very long text, which won't... 10 sec"


EXPECTED RESULT
If the text is too long
* To be completely shown in a hint when the mouse is over the text
* To be copyable to the clipboard
* I'd expect it to line break if possible:

"This is a very long text, which won't \
fit into the notification window!"

"This is a very long text, which won't\ 10 sec"
fit into the notification window!"

The summary is meant for a short summary, not half a novel.
It could still have a tooltip, though.

It don't that it was that long, however I shortened it a bit. :)

Additional ideas:
* Expand the notification message by a click on the notification in the
plasmoid. There could be an arrow indicating this possibility.

* Make a notifaction (but not necessarily the text) selectable in order to use
Ctrl+C to copy the message to the clipboard.

As I noticed it's not exactly the notification text, which is cut off, but
especially the title:

$ notify-send "This is a very long TITLE, which won't fit into the notification
window and therefore won't be completely readable!" "And this is a very long
notification description, which will line break and is copyable!"
