Bug Description

The left side of the "TAGS" part of the GUI seems clipped - doesn't look like the image on the lifeograph website and you can't see the symbols to collapse or open tag categories. Also the symbols on window control buttons - close, minimize, maximize - are too thick.

Might be relevant: the Lifeograph window has no shadow; you can't tell where the window ends when it's floating over a background (or other window) of the same color.

no One, can't you just adjust the width of the tags panel by dragging the divider between the tags panel and the middle panel? Although it is not obvious in newer Gtk themes, there is an adjustable divider between the two.

The other problems seem to relate to Unity and how it handles Gtk+ applications with header bars. e.g. what is the case with Gedit or similar Gnome applicaions; are they all OK?

Changed in lifeograph:

Ahmet, you are right - you can adjust the width of the panel, which takes care of the problem! But I believe that making the width narrower shouldn't clip the text, etc., from the left, but rather from the right, as is standard. And it should probably indicate, that it's been truncated - show "..." or something like that.

The other problems are indeed related to Unity and header bars. It seems that all the default Gnome applications like gedit, etc., have been altered by the Ubuntu team to disable the header bars, so they look fine. Not sure if there is anything you can/want to do about that. A hack solution is described here http://www.webupd8.org/2014/08/how-to-disable-gtk3-client-side.html, however it doesn't work very well - it brings back the shadow decoration, but then there are two title bars: the standard one with just the name and the extended header below it.
