#22222 new defect (bug)

"Mode" buttons bumped below (in 1024x768) when long category name exists

If there's a long category name, the category filter <select> menu widens. On a 1024x768 screen, this causes the list/excerpt mode buttons to get bumped down.

One thought was to move that option to Screen Options, which I think makes more sense anyway.

I like the idea of moving the view mode into Screen Options.

That would also mean that the view mode should become sticky. Right now it isn't remembered.

This is the direction #20335 headed.

... I thought it was sticky. Shows you how often I actually use it :) Well, +1 to #20335 for the user option, then.

Also there is no reason for the selects there to be that wide, perhaps reduce the max-width to 150px.

This is still an issue with the more-responsive admin of 3.8, for viewports between roughly 1050 and 1112px wide (with admin menu expanded), with the categories from the theme unit test. Once the paging navigation is also dropped down to its own line it looks okay. Maybe we should make both of those drop to a second line together, so that it looks okay regardless of the size of the selects?

I would still like to do #20335 and have a user option that's sticky. Then no more mode buttons, but screen options instead.
