SciTE font size off by one

13 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted

I use a monospace font for editing AutoIt scripts in SciTE (currently, CourierNew 9pt). Regardless of what font size I set in the configuration, when I start SciTE to resume editing the script text is one size smaller than I specified. When I type Ctrl+<numpad-slash> the text changes to the desired size. The same is true of the output pane, and I have to reset the size for both areas every time I start SciTE.

IIRC, I've made few other changes to the configuration (e.g., changed the search highlight color and disabled Tidy), so this behavior seems odd. About SciTE says it's version 3.6.0 (Aug. 4, 2015).

Any idea how to fix this?

I set the font from Tools > SciTE Config > General 1 tab's monospace font Change button, followed by Save+Apply. In the most recent config change, I set the font to Inconsolata 10. I also changed some of the editor colors and the number of backups (in addition to some previous changes), and save-applied.

When I start SciTE and check the config, the General 1 tab shows the monospace font set to Inconsolata 10, but the script and output text are the wrong size until I reset them (Ctrl+<numpad-slash>).

Yes, I did. I think the only change I made to SciTEGlobal.properties was to show the Output pane by default and to set its size; I made that change long after the font-size problem appeared.

SciTEGlobal.properties modification fragment:

:
:
#output.horizontal.size=200
#output.vertical.size=60
#output.initial.hide=1
output.horizontal.size=200
output.vertical.size=150
output.initial.hide=0

I see the same happening, where the font size changes when typing Ctrl+/, but have difficulty to properly determine which font size each is.
Needs some more investigation.

Yes. It looks to me like the initially-displayed font is the next smaller one within the list of available sizes, but that's just based on trying out different typefaces and sizes. My vision isn't sharp enough to say with any real certainty what is being displayed. :) I wish I could select some text and display its properties, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that.

The Ctrl+ ; Ctrl- ; Ctrl/ are controlling zooming and not really the Font size directly. 
I don't know why yet but it looks like SciTE starts one click below the regular 100% zoom level at startup.

Ok... found the issue. The SciTEGlobal contains:

magnification=-1

Which does what I described in the previous post namely setting the zoomlevel one click lower.

Put this in your SciTEUSer.properties and all is fine:

magnification=0

The zooming detail went in one eye and out the other. Thanks for the fix! B)

Somehow I uncommented those 2 lines in the SciTEGlobal.properties in my distribution, but will fix that for the next version. :)

Great!

When I fixed the setting just now, I didn't notice

output.magnification=-1

but sorted it out quickly. (Had to change the Output pane size anyway.)

Life does not like the vacuum. There will always be something to improve.

Thanks for your findings.

      I need to open an application and send it keys in Session 0.  I have exe's working locally, I can see the application open in session 0 through interactive services, but my send commands do not go to the application.  The following article running-autoit-session-0, directs me to use ControlSend() however my application has no controls that can be identified by AutoIt v3 Window Info.  Get All Windows Controls also returned nothing for the application's handle.  
      What are my options?  
      Can this be done with AutoIt?
      Is there a different "relatively simple" library/tool to use? (I am familiar with C# if there is a viable library there )

      Scite comes up occasional, almost incidentally, in some support topics.  I have not found a "Scite" topic in the forums, so this is where I will start.  I have recently been using Scite intensively, specifically with a large project and I have certain issues.  I know that Scite is not an AutoIt product, but it is so closely integrated to the core release that it makes sense to raise issues and request support here.  If this is not the right please refer me to the right forum.
      Thx
