Bug Description

For the ubuntu-clock core apps, we use tabs to switch between Timer, Stopwatch, Clock and Alarm. It is required by design to dynamically change the label of these tabs to match the current task.

For instance, in the Timer tab the default title is "Timer". When the user presses add timer preset button, the title should dynamically change to "Add Preset". This is done by,

timerTab.title = "Add Preset"

However on doing this, the spacing of the tabs is faulty. See attached screenshot which illustrates the issue.

Zsombor I gave this to you because you are working on dynamic tabs.
Perhaps it is fixed already?

Feel free to give it back to me if this doesn't fit your plans.

If this is not fixed yet, it can be changed to "Won't fix" because the new header won't have these problems any more.
