Summary0001532: Layers palette
Description1. If a name of a layer doesn't fit the palette window, it should be ellipsized and the full name should be displayed as a hint.

2. Size of this palette will be smaller, if print and visibility icons will appear instead of "enabled" checklist and not visible instead of "disabled" checklist. This is a usual way to do it. No idea why Scribus went the other way.

3. The thing on screenshot should never happen. Put a fixed length of visible characters in layers name (e.g. 14) and let the rest be ellipsized like described above. Together with icons elimination from each row this will give a nice small palette window.

4. Name column is usually placed to the right of print and visibility columns. It's a bit confusing to see it to the left of them.
TagsNo tags attached.

Yes, this palette needs a redesign. Will try to solve your points 1 - 4.

There should be "Together with checkboxes elimination from each row" instead of "Together with icons elimination from each row". I'm sorry for this confusion.

1) should though be realised.
