Bug Description

When editing an item like Browser in hungarian OS, where the name is Webböngésző, every save cuts the end of text, to like Webböngés. The solution is to remove length parameter from GLib.markup_escape_text in escapeText function. Please patch it.

cut.patch working
Daniel Agocs thank you :)

Manuel: sudo gedit /usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/menulibre/

Python version may differ from you.

Search: return GLib.markup_escape_text(text, len(text))
Replace and save: return GLib.markup_escape_text(text)
