Description

If a character string delimited by spaces exceeds the maximum line length of 33 characters, Doomsday shifts down the entry by one line, starting from the beginning of the overlong string and then applies a line break. The 'version' and 'license' entries are affected likewise.

Windows 10 x64 v1809, Doomsday x64 build 2904

This issue is not unique to package metadata. It generally relates to forced word wrapping behavior in LabelWidget.

#2 Updated by xe_sued about 1 year ago

Update: URLs (i.e. strings containing forward slashes "/") doesn't seem to be affected by this issue, they get properly wrapped to the next line.
