App with Bigger font size

Post by moris »

Hey,

Is it possible somehow to make the font size of the app a bit bigger? I.E. Toolbox, Property Inspector and etc... Is it customizable?

Thanks.

No, the font size cannot made bigger.
However, it should use the same font size as all your other apps. I am not sure if I have any control over this on MacOS as a developer.

Isn't the font the same as in other apps for you?

The dont / size on mine is also very small. I use a27inch iMac, and QnEWB is the only one that everything looks really small on - I have to get to within 10 inches of the screen to read what they say. Looks like they are about 5 to 7 point???
my wife keeps chastising me for peering at it too closely!

For me it looks the same as other apps.
Can you please make a screenshot of what it look like for you and how it compares to other apps?

Ive uploaded a screenshot of the new V11 Trial, next to this web browser -
https://rusling.me/QnEWBsample.jpg

It's a remarkable difference; the text size on the Object Manager, for example, is tiny and other managers even smaller. Considering that I only use maybe 3 or 4 Toolbox items per site, most is just clutter to me.
Thanks if you can do anything to help my poor old eyes!

Thank you!
Good to know I was not the only one who was bothered from this. I feel like I need glasses.

I'm sorry, but this is not a useful example. The font in the browser is in no way related to the user interface. QWB is not a web page.

Can you please use another application as reference?

Its not the resulting web pages that are the problem,
its the QnEWB programme. When one opens it and has the
OBJECT MANAGER | TOOLBOX | SITE MANAGER | PROPERTY INSPECTOR
scattered around the edges of the page. Everything in those four areas is minuscule,

Id just like to increase the size of the text in those 4 boxes. Either increase what text size it uses, or have a magnifier switch in when one hovers over it.

Yes, I understand that.
However, your example screenshot is of a webpage so this is not useful for me to understand what it looks like for you compared to other apps.

Can you please make a screenshot of QWB and another app with the same kind of layout so i can see the difference?

Not sure I have anything like QnEWB or with that kind of layout.
I have overlapped three apps showing their sidebars, and some content,.
The QnEWB is the one on the right,

There isn nothing wrong with page content on QnEWB, its just the two side bars (boxes)
for Inspector etc that have such small text size, making it hard to see. As the day goes on I find I am peering hard from about 12 inches away from the screen - which on a. 278 inches is crazy.

Many thanks

Paul

Is the text in the dialogs also small?
For example, does this look different on your computer?

Image

If yes, what does it look like compared to dialogs in other apps?

Yes Pablo, it also looks very small. I need glasses when using the app.

Before I can do something about this, I first need to know what it looks like for you. For me, it seems to look the same as in other apps.

Can you please share a screenshot of how it looks on your computer, compared to another apps?
And does it apply to all windows, dialogs or just the 'managers'?

The problem is not the contents of an y windows, its just the text in the side boxes - the objects Manager, Toolbox especially, but also the prop Inspector

. . as seen in this screen shot below:

Thanks for the screenshot.

The font of your system looks much larger than on my computer. Where did you set the font size in your system?

On my system, when I set the text size in "Displays" then this will effect everything, including UI elements. This also affects QWB.
