Large fonts
« on: March 15, 2016, 03:12:25 PM »

I'm on a small screen laptop right now, but still want to view xp images in RP using big fonts.
RP complains about loading them as it could not fit window (incl. all UI in large font) on my tiny desktop.

Is there any work around to force RP to use such font, even if window would blow outside of screen?

Rotated desktop (portrait mode via nvcpl) helped to launch rex with a bit bigger fonts :) - just in case someone would like to use ie: 8x16 fonts on 1600x900 desktop :) ( of course question remains open )

It's limited by height, so I guess rotating your desktop is one way to handle that :P. Right now it's not possible to use large fonts on a smaller screen, since allowing it would mean there's no way to move the window, and the tools etc will appear off the screen and become partially or entirely inaccessible.

Since you mention it, this could be addressed as part of a future update that allows for a more dynamic UI, so the tools don't have to all appear in one vertical block on the left, and could be spread out or optional.
