Re: build 5001 released

do you have a "proper" program registered for emails, or is it through your internet browser? anyway, the automatic attachment only works for clients like outlook and the like... I use 4 or 5 computers and two phones on a regular basis, and because I use browser based emails I can access any and al...

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

the one Saboteur created was actually 16 / 24 (I doubled the 24 to 48 to make my 'custom' XL skin, and that is obviously showing some fuzziness when in use at 48 px). Unfortunately, I cannot say right now what size would be nice - I don't have the 4K monitors yet lol. They are waiting to complete pr...

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

That's probably the case, then - trying to use 24px icons killed it lol. Still, though, it was a bit of fun playing around with the icon sets. I'm still trying to figure out why the ribbon icons are smaller than the toolbar icons when I use the exact same file - so I suspect that it must be for the ...

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

Yes. Here is *exactly* what I did. I somehow found this link, I thought Gary had linked to it in his OP but I don't see it now: https://www.zabkat.com/blog/high-dpi-screen-toolbars.htm I downloaded the 48x48 skin .ZIP linked in that blog, and upon extracting, I noticed that it was the same size as t...

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

Ah, I assumed the x2skin_48.png was for the ribbon. Now I understand. So, in effect, replacing that x2skin_48.png file with anything shouldn't make a difference. Easy enough to test. And it seems the ribbon is hardcoded to use a specific sized icon set, regardless of what you throw at it, too (maybe...

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

The way I figured it out was weird. I took Saboteur's files, and used Paint.net to upsize each to a larger size. So the XL he has, which are 24 pixel high icon strip I resized to 48 pix, and the 16 pixel I resized to 24, to see if I could get a larger 'small' icon set. I named them appropriately, an...

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

John, I have a pair of 4K monitors running full 4K ... else why get 'em in the first place? I do, in fact, run the recommended 150percent display adjustment. Sadly, my eyes require it. Main one's portrait, which I like, really, really like. The other's landscape for watching videos. And of course, ...

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

Sorry to hear that you're having these issues. I see now - in my installation that setting is most definitely not disabled, and turning it on does make the icons a lot smaller. But as to why it is happening to you, I cannot say. BTW - you can export your settings to import them again later on so tha...

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

Sounds like your Windows 10 install is having you use large fonts so they are readable on a display with that many pixels, but the actual resolution of a 4 K monitor makes most other things seem tiny. But on my machine, (not using 4K yet, as I don't have 4K monitors - yet), I can adjust the display ...

Re: blog: scout tricks exposed

I've never heard of it either, until your blog post. But as I started reading it, I realized that I'd run into something similar before - how to make a homemade sundial ;D

Re: blog: scout tricks exposed

This actually is the basis of how a sundial works as well, the shadow of the gnomon can only display 180 degrees of the circular 360 degrees of the earth. A decent article about sundials: https://sciencing.com/a-sundial-work-4564064.html For example, someone building a sundial at latitude 40° in Bou...

Re: build 5001 released

there are a number of considerations that make a permanent drivebar tricky. I could put one drivebar in the titlebar of each pane (where the clickable path is) but what if someone has 20 drives connected? So the only feasible solution is to offer a drop-down list there instead of a drivebar With du...

Re: build 5001 released

I have an idea, but I'm not sure if this makes any sense, so let me *try* to explain. I also realize that I am not a programmer, so what I may be asking may already be what you've considered and relegated to the whole "It'd be much too complicated to implement' column. Still, though, I tink it is wo...
