Increase font size in decimals

Postby hari3 » 12 May 2018 09:43

Add an option to increase the font size of list items in decimals.The reason is font size of 9 is too small for me and 10 is little big for the eyes.

I have to say you have a very demanding tone in all your wishes...

Anyway the problem is a limit of the built into Windows font picker dialog AFAIK, but what you want to do is still already possible, you can either adjust the font size by Ctrl+MouseWheel over the list etc, or alternatively make the changes in your ini file directly e.g

[Font]
MilliSize=9600


This will set the size ½ way between the 2 sizes you mentioned in the file list (9600 = 9.6), the other font settings are available under this [Font] ini key too, not all point sizes are valid but it can still give you the ability to set in between values, you may find non default fonts may only accept certain values I'm not 100% though, it might take some trial and error on your part to find a acceptable value.

When you set the font size using CTRL+ the mouse wheel you get all possible sizes that are available for the current font. Maximum resolution.

No, fonts support only certain sizes, e.g. 9, 9.75, 10.5, 11.25 ...

Then you add a feature to increase the size by 0.25 percent

I see no 0.25 steps in those screenshots (https://www.xyplorer.com/release_18.90.php#TFS). :?

PS: I clearly see 0.75 steps. But this, as I said before, depends on the font. This one is Segoe UI.
