Currently the Depicts selector frequently covers up the metadata on both mobile and web, making it hard to, for example, type names of depicted individuals in the categories and/or the description from commons. Is there a way to make it less tall for each of the suggested items?
Yes well spotted. We actually have other issues with the library we're using for the search dropdown, so the plan was to switch to a different library which has much reduced space taken up apart from other things.
We'll make sure the new library we choose addresses this along with the other issues.
I checked the library repo at https://github.com/select2/select2. The best possible fix seems to be changing
var enoughRoomAbove = viewport.top < (offset.top - dropdown.height); to var enoughRoomAbove = false; , if we want the dropdown to be below always.
The library still doesn't provide an option to set the above and below behavior by user.
specific file can be seen at https://github.com/select2/select2/blob/develop/src/js/select2/dropdown/attachBody.js (line 176).
I have already tested this and it works great on mobile and desktop views.
Should I create a patch ? Thanks.
