How To Make OBI Publisher 11.1.1.9.5 Prompts Display Like they Did in BIP 11.1.1.6.4 (Prompts Fit To Page and Wrap Prompt Labels) (Doc ID 2169355.1)

Goal

Recently upgraded OBIEE and OBI Publisher from version 11.1.1.6.4 to version 11.1.1.9.5 and have noticed that BIP prompts are not displaying as they did in the previous release.  Specifically, when using dashboards with 40 or more prompts, the prompts section does not auto-size to fit the number of prompts, but instead shows horizontal and vertical scroll bars which can be used to view the prompts.

Additionally, in the previous version, if the prompt label (or name) was long, the prompt name would partially display and use an ellipsis (...) to indicate the name was larger than the text displayed. For example, if the prompt name was too long, it might show:

"Reference1(Begins..)"

Is there a way to suppress or remove the horizontal and vertical scroll bars?

Also, is there a method to wrap the prompt label (with an ellipsis) as it worked in BIP 11.1.1.6.4, and to control the length of drop down values?
