#898 the autotips are in a very small font on Windows

João Pais


just trying out pd-ext-0.43 on Windows 7, some small details that can get better:

- when caps lock is on, the key shortcuts don't work (open, save, edit,...)
- in the help browser, it would help if pressing a key would take it to the next file beginning with that letter: e.g. l goes to liner, etc.,
- is it possible to change the distance of the objects in the autopatcher without recompiling Pd?
- the autotips are in a very small font.
- the canvas properties window doesn't appear in focus
- in the message window, it would be helpful if the history would appear as a drop-down list (although not too many people use this ressource?)
- the problem with the superfluous sliders in patches with objects near the border is still there.

There was something else, but I can't find it anymore.

Great work,

    I'm renaming the subject and assigning this to Jonathan, since that part is the most concrete. The rest seem to be feature requests. When adding things to this tracker, please only include one item per tracker report. Otherwise, if you want to make reports with many items, post them to the list.

    Is this still an issue?

    What's the right way to fix the font issue? I guess I can set the font inside the tip code but wouldn't it be better to make some addition to the options database for the tip label widget?

    And if the name of the tip label is always $canvaswindow.tiplabel, what the code to use to set the font to the default pd font for all the tiplabel label widgets?

    I just tested the latest build - 0.43.4-extended-20130108 - and it's still an issue.
