[GNC] Size of Windows, tabs, Fonts, etc Twice as big in 3.3 vs 3.2

DenverJim
Hi.  This a more annoying issue than anything else.  When i upgraded to 3.3,
the entire GUI, along with everything else, is much larger.  I used to be
able to see everything i needed on my screen, but now have to scroll the app
horizontally to see everything.  Font sizes are much bigger, Tabs widths
bigger, entire width of the overall guy is wider.  

I've looked at preferences and read help manual, but see nothing about how
to resize everything back the way it was in 3.2.  

Any help appreciated.  

Running 3.3 on MacOs High Sierra on MBP.

Thanks,

Create a file using Text Edit.app and put this in it:

* {
  font-size: 12px;
}

Use Format > Make Plain Text to convert it to plain text, then save it as “gtk-3.0.css” and put it in “/yourusername/Library/Application Support/Gnucash”

This will cause the entire app to have a text size similar to the default for your Mac.

Note, this and more customizations are documented on the wiki. Check the FAQ in the Configuring & Customizing section. There you will find links to CSS and GTK3 pages detailing your options.

If Geert & John are reading this: was this a change to accommodate retina scaling or is this a bug?

Regards,
Adrien

Adrien,

I can't put my fingers on the message right now, but John noted recently noted in a thread that there was a difference in interpretation of resolutions at Apple involving pixel density, which resulted in the change in appearance.

I guess it’s a matter of opinion whether it's a bug or not. It was an effort to get text scaling right on Retina, see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=795188 <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=795188> for the full discussion.
