Border around text - more scalable

Post by Peter2 » Tue Dec 10, 2019 6:53 pm

Adding text to the image, I can set the textsize to "percent" and start with "0.00" upwards.

The size of the border starts with "1" and can only be increased in full steps. That's to big when you have a text with "Size: 1.50 %".

Suggestion:
The setting of text frame should follow the settings of the text.


Edit:
I just see that the size of the border is used also by the "Fill" command, although I have the Border disabled.
It's obvious after thinking about it, but also a little bit confusing.

And maybe there could be different settings:
a) The size of the "background area"
b) The line-width of the frame (the border) with surrounds the "background area"

Sorry Pierre

this posting should
a) be moved to XnConvert forum and
b) be more precise.

On the image you can see
a) the settings for size of the frame with only changes in full numbers (1, 2, 3, ..)
b) the wish for different settings for the "size" of the frame and the "line width"

I hope it is better described now.

ok, but in your example, not easy to have a line width < 1 pixel

It's not about the width of "1 pixel", it is "1 percent" of many pixels.

For MP 0.96

a) Looks fine - thanks.
b) Maybe still on "Todolist" for further consideration / implementation?

c) Cosmetic wish:
The unit "points / percent" are valid for all 4 tabs. Maybe it can be displayed on all tabs too?
