Hehe, I wish. Still got a full work day ahead of me. After that I will be sure to enjoy. You too!

@Jason surely we deserve a fix based on the sheer entertainment factor in this thread?

My yoga lady is now getting slightly stressed about this issue, which is very unlike her. It’s also been flagged as a bug by a customer with a property listings app. Any update or potential workaround? I really don’t want to “fall back” to a standard list if possible as they are bland in comparison.

@Mark can you please tell me if this bug is at least logged somewhere. It’s causing me some issues this week. Appreciate it may not be top priority, but is an end in sight? Cheers.

Yes, we’re aware of the bug :wink:

Ok @eltintero. That’s reassuring thanks. Do you have any broad timeframe that I can convey to my users?

Nope, we don’t have a timeline for that. Sorry.

That’s a shame. Are you aware of any workarounds I can use? I have one live customer and one in trial who are beginning to get frustrated.

maybe some css that can work to fix the bug eventually

I’m wondering if anybody has ever tried an SVG image. I wonder if they would render almost instantly, which would prevent the card from resizing after the page and after image loads…losing the spacing.

I think it’s largely the avatar image that loads after the card size is determined when the page is rendered. That causes the card to resize again and messes up the spacing.

I’m not too familiar with SVG images, but it’s my understanding that they are code instead of binary images, so they may not need to be downloaded and cached the same way that other images are. Then again, I could be completely wrong, but it may be something to try.

Hi @Jeff_Hager. I’ve tried this but to no avail. Several of our views don’t even use the avatar field and yet still exhibit the symptoms. Having said that you’ve made me think about the details field, which we often set as many lines as possible and utilise in a chat scenario (it works really well). In this case the variable length of the text will also require a recalc of the card dimensions I imagine. It’s a tricky one and perhaps I’m in the minority, but I use card view a lot and I’m getting negative feedback at the moment. It’s a shame.
