Very small font in sidebar

Post by legionmaster » Mon Dec 19, 2016 11:24 pm

Hi, just installed freeoffice for the 1st time.
So I was going around the menus and trying to learn some features. The sidebar might have been helpful with that (?). But the font in win 10 is so small, it is too tiring to read from it.
I saw the topic viewtopic.php?f=261&t=15165&p=52061&hil ... ont#p52061, but it seems the appearance card in options/Tools menu changed (or just does not apply for win 10).
Sb has any suggestions? Thx

Hi Legionmaster,

What is the resolution of your computer monitor?

Of course, the editted text visibility can be easily modified. The same would be great for the sidebar.

I put this topic to the TextMaker thread. In fact the issue is the same in other FreeOffice Apps (Presentations and PlanMaker).

You have increased the font size in your Windows. The sidebar shows just a bitmap with text, and this does not scale. This cannot be fixed.

Yes, I know I increased a font size. I just wanted to demonstrate which font size of sidebar would be best for me.
It is weird the sidebar text doesn't scale. Seems like a simple thing.

It is not, because the sidebar is a bitmap image. If we'd scale it, it would become illegible.
