Issues with widgets size on taskbar

Hello everyone. From last 2-3 days, I am experiencing issues with widgets which I had pinned on taskbar. As the title suggests, the size of the tabs of widgets gets small when I click them to view :


.
.
But, when I change the position, everything becomes normal :
.


.
When again I restart the device, this issue comes back, and gets resolved by changing the position. This happens with other widgets, including the notification pop-ups, which become small and appear at central edge, rather than the top corner.
Also, EOS-update notifier’s name is missing as well, which is just shown as appname.
How should I proceed in order to fix these issues ?

You can resize widgets with your mouse, holding down Alt and using the right mouse button.
Also, you can move widgets, holding down Alt and using the left mouse button.

That is possible for the case when I pin the widgets on desktop. But, if you look at the image, the event calendar widget is not in its regular size, but when I change its location on taskbar, it comes back to normal size.
The issue is with widget icons which are pinned on taskbar, and also the notifications.

and my answer is exactly for that. Have you tried my advice though???

Yes. I tried that, and will only change the size according my need. But all those changes disappears after reboot and results in poor scaled appearance, and it get fixed if I change the widget position, as I did in the image shared.

Then you can only check or report upstream kde bugs. I can’t think of something else…

When this issue is in effect, then all the system notifications also get cropped, and when I fixed the issue via that hack, everything gets normal…

What hack? Changing the position?

If desktop/plasma settings are lost after reboot, this is a problem. It is not uncommon, since Plasma development changes a lot of stuff and old cache and configuration files may conflict with new code.
Do more tests with this to find more and make it reproducible from others. And as said, check upstream bug reports and if not any, create one with your findings.

This can be configured in System Settings. If it works for one boot and they are lost on reboot, it sounds like a common issue. Else, it is totally different.
Upstream would know better.

No setting is lost, only widgets appears cropped, which can be only fixed by changing the position. Reinstalling won’t helps.
.
I feel you didn’t got the issue regarding notifications.
As I said initially, the notifications issue only appears when widgets are cropped, and it also gets fixed if I fix the widget cropping via changing its position.

I also feel the same, there might be some bug :bug: in the calendar, which might be incompatible with latest kernel. As you told, I will try to collect more information regarding the bug.

Will this provide any help :

@petsam ,
.
I tried different widgets, and all of them resulted the same issue, & get resolved via that “hack” . Now I am thinking is this really a bug or something else ? As every widgets result the same error.
Also the key commands you suggested not works on the top taskbar visible in the image.

Hi, just to put in some more information. I had some issues with event calendar and sticky notes regarding this display error. I found out that it happened with KDE framework update fomr 5.92 to 5.93

I filed a bug at KDE guys. Nate Graham said that there needs a fix to be backported to 5.93.

See my bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=452607
and "Master bug with Nate’s comment: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=452512#c5

Thanks for providing the support to me, also did you experienced this issue with other calendar/time based widgets?

it’s not an issue with the widget but with KDE framework. Downgrading event calendar wouldn’t help.

got fixed today with update

extra/plasma-framework 5.93.0-1 → 5.93.0-2
