#124 new defect

PSI v.016-2018-07-16 chat window does not respect FONT size settings

Reported by: darcio Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: psi
Version: Keywords: psi chat window font size


Now that we overcame the THEME issue (see ticket #123) I have encountered a different issue. Not sure yet if this is a true error, or an intended design of the application.

Looking at the CHAT window, PSI picks up the font settings from it's setups, in my case I am using 'Verdana 10'. The NEW text which I am typing is reflecting the correct sizing of the text, however, the chat text RECEIVE and SENT window (the one right above the new text entry field) does not use the same font size.

I invenstigated further before openning this ticket given that we made previous changes to the THEME. I attempted the following:

var cssSentMsg = '{font-size:200%}'

...this did not help.

I also reviewed the internal runtime information (using the chat window RMB 'Inspect' option), however I did not find anything there (obvious to an end-user like myself).

A screenshot showing the CHAT window as well as the setups is included.

as this is not a crash and only cosmetic this has to wait for long probably. As first we need to port Qt5. If we ever get it done depends heavy on individual sponsors.

@diver OK, got it, no problem, makes sense to me! Thank you for the update.

For the sake of completeness - the font setting for Message window seems to be ignored completely. Older PSI versions used WarpSans? 9 by default I guess. New PSI uses some bigger font with anti-aliasing.
