Description Lawrence Lim 2005-05-11 07:47:31 UTC
Description of problem:
For all CJKI, users are required to select candidates from the candidate window.
In evolution, this candidate window is always positioned at 0,0. As a result, it
obstruct users from seeing what was typed earlier. It would be ideal if the
candidate window is positioned below the cursor.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 evolution
2. Go to task list
3. Go to new task entry in the widget
4. Type "sushi", space, space 
5. observe rthe position of the candidate window
Actual results:
candidate window block the user from seeing what was typed earlier

Expected results:
candidate window positioned below the cursor

Apparently you are confused. this is saying that the candidate window doesn't
follow at the bottom of the cursor.

Comment 11 Satyabrata Maitra 2006-06-20 12:14:45 UTC
This bug is not fixed yet. It still exists. Candidate window is not appearing 
below the cursor. Tested on the package versions :


Tested on O.S. : Fedora Core Release 5.89 (Rawhide) i386.
