Bug when adding barchart widget to dashboard

I have been having issues trying to add a new barchart widget to my dashboards in Google Analytics. In the 'Add a widget' popup box, all of the other types of widgets work fine, but when I click on 'bar', the dialogue box then extends offscreen and there is no way of scrolling, so there is no way for me to click on the 'save' button. I have this issue in Chrome and Firefox, and also in IE, but in IE I am able to highlight the text and drag to make the save button visible. Is there any way to fix this?


Please see the screenshot below to show what I mean.

Hi Hannah,

Oh you're right – same in my account with different browsers. That's obviously a bug.

Workaround: Click into the "link to report" field and then use your tab button on your keyboard to proceed to the end of the page.
