Item7731: Dashboard layout goes awry if box height is increased

When I use the DASHBOARD addon, and I resize (height) the first box to accommodate text that otherwise would create a scrollbar, I also resize the other boxes in the first row, to the same height. But then the other two boxes on the first row end up shorter and in different positions, as well. I have attached a screen capture to show the effect.

I know that there is some simple way to get around this, from working in TWiki for another company (but I can't get to their TWiki now), but I can't recall what it is.

Assistance would be much appreciated.

In the image below, all the BOX heights have been set to 256px.

Thanks, Andy

I set this to "no action required", see explanation at TWiki:Support.SID-02166

Even after removing the spaces, I get the results as shown in the second image. If I add 20px to the heights of box 2 and 3 it "fixes" the problem.

This is because the default TWiki boxes have a content style with custom padding and margin, which influcenes the overall height.
