Two-column view can truncate text

Postby djmitchella » Mon Feb 04, 2008 2:47 pm

In two-column view, the layout engine seems to get confused, and can wind up laying text out next to an image in such a way that the text is truncated.

See the right-hand column here:

I'd rather GreatNews didn't try and fit text into a too-small space, and just started the text below the image.

The Newspaper and Firefox Sage views do indeed truncate some of the text next to images, but the Brief view does not (obviously, it does not display images at all). However, I myself never use two columns view, usually I stick with Readability, it's the best option for reading inside GreatNews.
