User-added image


Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a catalog item with a description:

    TheatreMan is used to capture and report activity within the theatre episode for all patients. Clinical personnel, patient demographics, times and procedure details are all recorded in the TheatreMan system. Selecting this item will allow access to TheatreMAN in the clinical applications folder

  2. Move to Browse Catalog
  3. Click the tile of the new item to view description
  4. Note it does not keep words from being split across lines.
  5. Note the CSS attribute for word-wrap of catalog-desc is not ?normal?


Place the following in custom.less which is generally located in installation folder: \Programs files (x86)\Flexera Software\App Portal\ Web\ Content

.catalog-desc {
	word-break: normal;
