PBOL gauge text too big on hi res monitors
« on: December 09, 2015, 08:32:31 AM »
On my 14" monitor with 1920 x 1080 resolution, the guage text (such as "remaining" and "end date") stays too big (while the progress bar item name is displayed in much smaller font, which is fine).

The problem is that I'd like to have one single row with 5 bars (docked at the bottom of the screen, stretching across the whole screen), and while the bars with their item names fit in there fine, the start and end of each guage text gets cut off because the font is too big (not the same size as bar item name).

It's kind of nice to have the gauge text a bit bigger than the bar item name (as there is normally more room within a bar), but at the moment the font is a bit too big.

Mouser - any chance for an option to adjust the font size on the gauge text? (And a bit more love for this awsome tool!)  :-*

I see.. ok I will try to fix -- perhaps by just allowing some custom font size options.

Try the newly uploaded beta:


You should see new option on Appearances tab where you can override default gauge text font size.

Fabulous! Perfect!  :Thmbsup:  :-* Thank you very much mouser for the quick solution! I went with font size 9 and it fits in perfectly and is still bigger than the bar item name.

I love this tool and it's permanently displayed at the bottom of my screen all the time. And now it's got even better! Thanks once more!
