Sometimes we might have projects with very large names and similar beginnings, so when searching for the relevant project in the Issue navigator drop down will be an issue as it has a limited width.


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

    <style type="text/css">
    form#issue-filter .check-list-select{
    min-width: 500px;

  3. You can change the min-width: 500px; to the width of your preference.
