font size and multiple line entries hide the current selection (org refiling with ivy) #151

When refiling an entry with ivy, it seems that the font size is not taken into account, so the selection is at the very bottom of the window:

The problematic part is when the lines are too long, they can span more than one line (probably because of font size) and the selection disappears:

This happens with the leuven theme. Is there a way to ensure the selection is in the middle of the window?

@abo-abo Add a set of commands for resizing minibuffer height
* ivy.el (ivy-minibuffer-grow): New command.
(ivy-minibuffer-shrink): New command.

* ivy-hydra.el (hydra-ivy): Bind "<" and ">".

Use "C-o >>>>>" to grow the minibuffer, and "C-o <<<<<" to shrink it.

I'm still looking into this, but for now I've added a way to increase the minibuffer height dynamically.


Thanks, this will be most useful.

Thanks, this should be fixed now. I've also fixed an issue regarding the selection not being highlighted.


I really like your solution. It works great, thanks!
