Summary0003336: Transition settings "Track" popdown too narrow to be useful
DescriptionTransition property panes contain a setting to control the other track with which the track containing this transition is composed with. Unfortunately, the drop down list (combobox) used to control this setting is of an extremely fixed width, see also the attached screenshot. The track names thus get clipped, even when resizing the property pane horizontally. Instead, the transition type drop down list resizes and swallows all horizontal space.

However, the number of transitions is fixed and the list is far too wide. Instead, the UI would become better by restricting the transition type list to a fixed width, such as 20em or similar. By making the track list swallowing horizontal space instead the track names would become readable instead of getting clipped.
Steps To Reproduce1. Place a clip on a track,
2. then add a transition (such as affine) to the clip in the timeline.
3. select the transition.
4. open the track list of the transition property pane.

This list is barely readable as it stays too narrow to be really useful.
TagsNo tags attached.

quick fix just commited (in the restored master branch, so build scripts should work), track list gets resized.
OK for you?

Yes OK for me. I've tested a recent nightly build from the MLT website on Kubuntu 14.04. The list box now resizes and its default width is wide enough to accommodate the track names.

Thank you very much for fixing this UI nuisance!
