Summary0004493: InsertDatum.ui dialog height too small
DescriptionOn Fedora 33 in the InsertDatum dialog the input field is too small for the text making it hard to read. I've attached a screenshot of what it looks like on my computer.

Altering the height in src/Mod/Sketcher/Gui/InsertDatum.ui from 140 to 170 makes it look a lot nicer. I've attached a screenshot with the result after setting the height to 170 as well.

@dennisb have you asked on the forum if this issue is also reproducible on other platforms or is it just unique to Fedora 33?

I assumed it looked good on other platforms since someone selected that original height value and it must look good for that person.

I hoped that making the dialog a little higher it would still look good elsewhere. But let me ask in the forum for screenshots on other platforms and hopefully we can get some more data.
