Font for Filename in Thumbnail label

Post by xnview » Sat Sep 17, 2005 1:00 pm

Hello,
i'll put filename as "Thumbnail label", so you could put it where you want.
But should i take the same font as other info? Or use another font for the filename?
(for me, better is same font)...

Same font as other info labels is fine for me.
<i>(would 'bold' with same font be easier to implement?)</i>

The filename is something special which should be seen at first glance. Currently, it is a bit larger font than the other thumbnail labels, it would be good if this would remain.

A bold font would be also a possibility, not sure whether this would look good and be readable well.

What about the same, just a bit larger font?

I think we must see it, then we can choose...

As written above the font for the filename should be a bit larger than the font for the other labels. The rest does not matter much.

Until now I haven't read or heard of requests for a customizable font of labels, and personally I do not care much. But there might be short-sighted people that want to choose a larger font.

If you have enough room for two "Font.." buttons, I think you should provide two buttons. This will give maximum flexibility.
