CHS - Clip Text Font Size
« on: July 28, 2017, 07:49 PM »
Hello all,

I am trying to change the font size of the actual clip underneath the memo

I couldnt find this setting at all

I found the grid font size memo font size, but no clip text font size.

Also on a quick side note - From the Paste Menu a yellow pop up appears - I would like to make this box larger

I couldnt find the setting for that

thank you for your help
:)

Hello,

the clip text font size changed, when i restarted the CHS.

So 1 problem solved.

it was the MEMO font in the settings

I would still like to know how to change the pop up menu  box size on the paste menu

...I would still like to know how to change the pop up menu  box size on the paste menu
______________________________________
In the main CHS pane, click on the icon of the little cogged gears, or select menu View-->Options, and that will bring up the Options panel. Then select Quick Paste Pop-up Menu and adjust the settings to get the desired - or an acceptable (for you) - result. Trial-and-error at that point usually works for me.   ;D
Thus:

Also, regarding the highlighted link text (red oblong box in the image clip above), take a look at that link (discussion thread), especially:
Improving ergonomic readability in the CHS (Clipboard Help and Spell) clipboard manager.

I mentioned this (about CHS) above, and here's a more explanatory example.
This sort of thing is not only good for helping one to quickly make changes to the GUI to optimise (ergonomic) readability for one's personal needs, but also is ergonomically efficient.

Also, this post could make a heap of difference to readability:
How to improve ergonomics/perception/readability of text across all applications in Windows 10: Adjust System font settings.
This could effectively transform the readability experience for people who - like me - have to use reading spectacles for reading from laptop screens.
(The image below was been "sharpened", and the text it contains is in the spoiler below the image.)
The text in the menus for all my applications are now made more readable with this simple change. Adjust and test the settings by trial-and-error to see what best suits your peculiar needs.

______________________________
Not sure I understand that. I think the box automatically resizes itself, so as to fit the content that it needs to display - so you don't need to (and cannot) make it a fixed height/width.
If it is simply a case of you can't read the text though, then you could increase the relevant font size (or embolden it) in the system settings (i.e., not in CHS itself), as described above. Then the box will auto-adjust itself to fit the changed (extra) text display requirement. (This is what I have found to work on my system in Win10, in any event.)

Hello Iain,

oh thats a shame, no big box

The images you can make big and set the pixel size on the pop up preview
I just thought you could adjust the pop up preview of the yellow text box and I had missed the setting somewhere.

I'll try and experiment with the system fonts

:)

Let me see if I can add options for quick pop-up box font sizes, etc.
