Font Size in preferences too small

Post by kgaby » Mon Jun 01, 2020 5:31 pm

Operating system Windows 10
QCAD version 3.24.3.0

I am having trouble adjusting the font size when I access the Drawing Preferences and the Application Preferences. The outline view on the left is a good size font for viewing but when I click on an item in the outline view the pop up on the right is extremely small.
These small fonts are not associated with the drawing only preferences.

How can I make the font size bigger in the software preferences screens?

Work smart, not hard: QCad Pro

If a thread is considered as "solved" please change the title of the first post to "[solved] Title...". Thanks!

Odd. I haven't seen something like that before and cannot reproduce it here.

If you're comfortable working with files and directories on your computer, you can try to store this DLL file under your QCAD installation directory under plugins/styles (you might have to create the folder "styles" inside the folder "plugins" first):

http://qcad.org/archives/styles/qwindowsvistastyle.dll

This will give QCAD a slightly different look. Not sure if that also fixes the font size problem but it might be worth a try.

In my computer display properties I changed the resolution from 3840 x 2160 to 1920 x 1080. Now the font size is appropriately sized when in the menu.
