This is with 6.2 beta 4 on Windows 8.1

I have the Collections tool open and click the "Open" button to search for one of my collections.

When I enter a search string which matches one of my collections everything is fine

When I enter a search string which doesn't match, the drop-down menu contracts

The screencast at http://screencast.com/t/GOkoLzDrcv demonstrates this

Also happens in 6.2 Beta 4 on Windows 7, but not OS X 10.10.2

Yeah, it's done that forever. It is kind of odd, but it's never really bothered me. The width is wide enough to show the content of the listbox, and when nothing matched, the content is nil so the width can shrink. It probably doesn't need to shrink as there's nothing wrong with showing a too-wide empty list box.

Since this only happens when you type in characters that don't match any of your collections, and there's nothing getting truncated in the narrow width listbox, I'm guessing they will decide this isn't worth their spending time fixing. Unless there's one or two lines of code doing this intentionally that they decide really don't need to be there and can just be yanked out without breaking anything.

This is a Windows only issue. I'll create a case for a Developer to take a look at it Smile
