Font size in Options window
« on: December 27, 2010, 07:58:59 AM »
The font in my FARR Options window is extremely small.  Is there a way to make it bigger?

All other windows are fine or have adjustable fonts.

Ah yes.. ok so what we have here is the following:
  • You have your Windows OS configured for "large fonts", meaning that normally all of your fonts are larger than the default setup, and the setup i design for.
  • When my programs detect this, they explicitly force the fonts in the dialog to a fixed size so that they fit in the space available on the form.
  • Unfortunately there is no good solution to this.
  • Though i COULD make an option to disable this behavior, which would result in larger fonts in options, but some text would get cut off at the end.

Thanks for the quick reply.  Fortunately I don't go into the Options screen often, so I guess I can live with it. 

Is it because the Options screen is on a form that you cannot have scalable fonts?

Thanks again.
