      • Even the Dummy (do nothing) step has some issues.

      This behavior occurs in several and common used dialog. The issues we have are:

      • dialogs with grids, the grid doesn't show-up more than 2 or 3 rows and we could have more
      • the title of some dialog is not understandable, which require user to increase width
      • and some buttons are overlap by other buttons or text boxes
