Bug Description


1. Set system language to Russian
2. Long press super key

Expected results:
Either the text is wrapped around or the hint screen widens to accomodate the total length of the hint text (first is preferred though)

Actual results:
Text is truncated and it is hard to understand what some things were supposed to mean (e.g. in russian "Super+Tab" hint is "Переключение между приложениями, испо..." which means "Switching between application, using (which use - the word is truncated)

Thank you for submitting this bug report. Wrapping the text or increasing the width of the overlay both might break the current implementation. This hence requires design input from the Ayatana team. Hence marking the bug incomplete until further input from the design team.
