Interface Font Size
My interface font size in On1 Photo Raw 2019 is so small that it makes using it extremely difficult. I use a Mac. Is there a way to increase the size of fonts on the interface?
There is no setting for that, but you could check your screen resolution. If it's set very high, then everything will look very small.
There are a couple of knowledge base articles about it, but they are for windows only. I wouldn't know how to check this on a Mac.0
Thanks for the response. I'll check out your recommendation and hope that it works, cause it is a headache-causing exercise when using On1!0
Thank You Rick. Yes, changing display scale on the Mac in System Preferences did the trick!!0
Fonts are too small indeed, especially for the contextual menus and there is no solution changing the screen resolution: it gets blurred! The screens have native resolution and this can't be changed without loosing some precious accuracy.
One thing I find is that the right-clic menus are overloaded. For instance, on Browse mode, this menu counts 49 items (for me)!!!
Why "Edit in" is not grouped, with sub-choices? Same with "Send to". This would subtracted 14 lines (on my computer)... and the font could be slightly augmented.
[...On the contrary I don't understand why "Show in Finder" (in Explorer on PC I guess) is not offered in Dev mode. I always have to switch to Browse to reveal the photo].
The best solution is to offer the user the choice between two font sizes as it is the case in many softwares, Affinity Photo for instance.4
Show in Finder wouldn't make any sense in Develop mode. If you're in the middle of editing a photo, why would you suddenly need to go find the RAW file in your op sys. That's a Browser function, it makes sense in Browse.
It would be nice to be able to change font size and colour, but then someone will make a larger font and complain that it doesn't fit in the space allotted. Can't win!0
Rick I understand your first point but I disagree. My ideal workflow would be to stay in Dev 90% of the time and finding a pic on the HD (to verify its weight for instance) without leaving Dev would be fine for me.
But I understand it's a personal choice...
Note that C1 and LR allow to reveal in Finder from the Dev (that said, not so relevant for C1 as there is no such difference between Browse and Dev).
Font size: ok you can't please everybody, but having the choice is better than having none... :-)
I see indeed some font overflow in French in the Effects list for instance, it's pretty ugly, but the picture on the right hand side of this box is useless (after having seeing it one or twice) and takes a lot of room... So IMO there are some ways to increase the global readability of the UI.1
