Sometimes we might have Epic with very large names, JIRA does not show the full name of the Epic


Workarounds are ways to temporally circumvent a problem, although it still exists in the application.

  • Go to the Edit Announcement Banner page.
  • Add the following CSS script to modify the behavior of the dropdown:

    <style type="text/css">
    div#ghx-chart-selector, div#ghx-chart-picker-suggestions, input#ghx-chart-picker-field, 
    form#ghx-chart-picker-form, a#ghx-items-trigger {min-width:300px;}
  • You can change the min-width: 500px; to the width of your preference.
