Font size difference

Post by Gert-Jan »

Dear Costas,

Thank you so much for all the work done yet!

Just a minor remark. In the context-menu that pops up when right-clicking in bible view, the Find option has gotten a bigger font size. Do you intend this as a feature :wink: IMO it disturbs a little...

Regards,
Gert-Jan

Hello Gert-Jan,
thanks for your comments.
Actually, this is an intended feature! It is not just the font that is bigger, it is also a different font! Actually, the font of the "Find" option is the font of the current Bible you see. The reason is that some Bibles use specific fonts in order to be displayed properly, so it is necessary to use this font in the menu also (else, it would be possible that the word being searched for would not show properly there).

Notice that the menu also displays the word you right-clicked on (or selected), so i need to use the Bible's font there to be sure that it will be displayed correctly.

On the other hand, The size is relevant: each font has different "sizes" for the same 'windows size'. So, 8pt for a Hebrew font may look quite smaller than 8pt for the Serif font that displays english texts...

Hope this clears out the decision there,
Costas

Hi,

Thank you for your quick answer. I see why you have to use the font of the current bible view, and why the font size is important. Another default font size than 10pt possibly would fix this for English-and-the-like texts, but then other users would have to spoil their eyes staring at the screen.

This inconvenience is really, really very small!!! So please keep up doing the good work the Lord has laid upon you. May He also give you the strength and wisdom to continue.

It seems that a 10pt (although big for English texts) is quite normal for Greek/Hebrew fonts (i really don't know why these fonts tend to have smaller letters than other fonts we use regularly...)

Thank you for you comments,
Costas
