Tab names are truncated



A tab group layout is being used in a section. This is not using a dynamic container.
When the number of tabs grow and/or tab titles increase in length, eventually tab titles will be truncated.

Error Messages

Not applicable.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Add a tab group to a section.
  2. Add many tabs, with some lengthy titles.
  3. Turn on the stretch tabs option.

Root Cause

When user turns on the stretch tab option, and is configuring an option to stretch the tabs across the available space.
If there are too many tabs or tabs with lengthy titles, then it is expected for the tab names to start truncating.


This is working as designed. 

But to have lengthy tabs names, turn off the stretch tab feature. Then when available space has been met, one can see a drop-down with the rest of the tabs instead.
