Accounts Pane Font Size

Post by Wirmike »

Thank you for the new look on v 1.5.9.
I have been giving the new shortcut toolbar a try. I have found this surprisingly useful, especially the Filter Button for searching for transactions. How I managed w/out this I am beginning to wonder. Well done! The various buttons’ logo designs are nicely minimalistic, neat and good to look at. A confident statement for the future of MMEX?
SUGGESTION>
Now this toolbar is there, a really useful extra would be a button to toggle on and off the Navigation Pane.
ISSUE
I also tried out the Full Screen Button, toggling the full screen on and off.
A strange phenomenon that I have not seemingly been able to reverse is the effect that this activity appears to have had on the font in the Accounts and Stocks Panes. The font is suffer your and noticeably larger than that in the Navigation Pane. As there is no way to change the display font sizes in Options I cannot see if I there was an actual change.
Basically, when initially restored from full screen, I had the impression that the larger font and greater line spacing that resulted, gave a less pleasant and comfortable view.
Am I imagining this effect?
Hope you can help.
I can supply screen print if this will help.
My computer is a MacBook running Mac OS 10.13.6.

You obviously have the menu option, but yes we could add another option to the toolbar. Perhaps we could look at a customisable toolbar.

I can't reproduce this on either MacOS 10.15.7 or 12.0.1, maybe you are imagining.... A screenshot may be useful :-)

At last. Hopefully this will demonstrate the text size. I have created a mock database to show the affect.

Includes, also a shot of the S&S demo, albeit maybe from a Windows machine, to emphasise the difference.

Note also the differences in the line spacings.

Hope this helps,

Regards.

Regarding the difference in line spacings, this may be due to the size of the Status icon that is normally displayed at the left of the transactions (but seems to have been hidden in your screenshot).

Please check the size in Options | View Options | Others Icon Size as shown in these screenshots.

Remember to restart the app after changing this option.

Thank you for the solution.
I had noticed the option for “Others Icon Size”, but was looking for an option that mentioned “Text”.
How mistaken was I! I now have the Accounts Pane text restored to its ‘proper’ size.
Whatever happened to cause this option to change in the first place, I will muse over and save for a later day.
Clearly there are more options in Options that I gave MMEX credit for.
Cheers and thanks again.
Regards
