widget sizes changing on save in AppBuilder

Posted by AdrianJones on 27-Apr-2018 08:15

Hi all,

I have a windows 7 enterprise machine, running 10.2b06 client.

If I edit an existing .w GUI screen created by a colleague and save it, it resizes the size of some existing fill-ins, radio-sets and buttons slightly.

e.g. size 46 by .69 => size  46 by .71

Does anyone know what controls this behaviour?

One possibility is that the two installations have some difference in their settings. Press Ctrl-Alt-Shift-F1 in the AppBuilder on both machines to see where the settings are coming from. Then compare the settings in the Startup section and the Fonts section.

Thanks Matt. I tried that but made no difference as settings almost identical.

However, I have discovered the apparent cause, Windows font sizing on my machine was Set to "Medium - 125%" compared to colleagues machines all set to "Small - 100%". Changing this has fixed the issue.

Sadly my ageing eye balls will be struggling to cope with the tiny fonts.
