Because of a very long string

This bug is found in Thai UI language but in principle should applies for all,
regardless of UI language.

== What happened ==

When switch UI language to Thai, a Page Style tab (in every application) is
rendered in a way that unable to use. Lots of UI components like Page
orientation setting is invisible. (See Attachment #1)

Reason is there's one very long string inside Paper Format dropdown list. So
when rendered it makes the tab layout widen, to the point that other components
got pushed away.

The string in English is "Tabloid" 
See:
https://translations.documentfoundation.org/th/libo_ui/translate/cui/source/tabpages.po#unit=67963396

It turns out that this is actually a mistake, the current Thai string is an
error message, not actually a translation. 


== What is expected ==

Page Style tab should be rendered in full.
Every UI components in the tab should be visible.


== Recommended solutions ==

2 possible ways:

1) Quick fix:
- Fix the related translations, make them shorter.
- Suggested translation is แท็บลอยด์

2) Long-term fix:
- Make the dropdown list layout and tab layout more resilience to unexpected
long string.
- The UI component should decided to trim the string to be displayed to fits
the width of the UI component.
