Very small font in UI and menus in Linux (solved)

Post by phaidros52 » Fri Dec 18, 2015 10:53 am

Hi,
I have the new Linux version with Duden (not the beta anymore) and only in Textmaker the font for the UI and in menus is very small. Actually so small that I cant see the figures for the word count for example. How can I change the size of the font for the UI?

Ph.

There is a nifty little feature in SoftMaker Office that allows modifications
to the size of UI-controls and fonts.

You find it under Tools | Options. Choose the tab “Appearance”. I must change
the control-size to get control over the slider that adjusts the font. In
setting “Normal” I am unable to change the font-size. But in “Large”, this
works just fine.

Report back, if this does what you want.

Hi Michael,
thank you for the hint. It works even though there is still a
little glitch in the selecting method and the offered sizes. But OK.

Should mention that this solution is only for Linux.

Change the dialog style from "Linux (gray)" to "Linux (system)", and it will use the UI font used by Gnome, KDE or Unity (whatever is active).
