Bug Description

Preview buttons should stretch to adapt to the text inside.
For me, in French, I only notice this problem in the video lens.
Doing a preview on the very same file in the home lens displays big enough buttons (please see the attached screenshots).

However, the problem may occur on other lenses too with longer translations (I did not test).

Hi,
could you confirm that your second screenshot is a home Dash preview provided by the Files lens (in the Home "Files and Folders" category, as opposed to the "Videos" category)? Previewing a file in the Home from the Videos category should give you something similar to the first screenshot.

The bug is caused by the type of preview used by the videos lens (the left side of the preview is larger, to make 16:9 videos look better, hence causing the bug). I think this should be fixed on Unity side.

summary: - Buttons don't adapt to the text size
+ Preview buttons don't adapt to the text size

Hi David,

Indeed, the second screenshot comes from the "file and folder category"
in the home lens.
