Thumbnail layout: Footer 1 size extends also over footer 2
« on: January 05, 2019, 01:22:56 PM »
Full Thumbnail layout editor:

When specifying the size in the footer 1 fields the size extends also over the footer 2 field.

--> if I specify a small size it makes footer 2 disappear.

This bothers because one can not have a small gap between footer 1 and footer 2.

"Extends over" meaning? Which size do you specify for footer 2 or do you use a default size?
Note that the XAML markup component sometimes behaves a bit strange, especially when you use a screen with a DPI setting larger than 100% (which you do when I recall correctly).
I recommend to also specify a custom size for footer 2 (and 3 and 4) until the result matches your expectations. This is not something I can "fix".

The attached screenshots show what happens if I vary the size of footer 1.
Size of footer 2 is set fixed at 35.

(The same seems to also happen with size of footer 2 affecting footer 3 if present.)
My screen scaling is set to 225% in windows.

225% is awfully high. This may upset the markup height of row 1, pushing everything down.
Have you tried specifying a size for footer 2 as I asked you above?

No matter what I try I can not reduce the gap between footer1 and footer2.
(It's just a matter of saving screen real estate though)

I don't know anything about scaling in windows.

Here this works normal, see the attachements.
If I set all to 0 or nothing (attachement 1) the space is the same.

BTW, sometimes it happens to me, that I entered this number in the wrong line (in the size of the font).
And of course, you have not a BreakLine in your custom variable?
Best wishes from Switzerland! :-)

It is the 4k screen and the display software for it which is surely the reason for the difference.
But it does not explain why specifying a low size for footer1 makes footer2 disappear.

If the size is too small (There is a minimum size in pixel based on the default system font size), the XAML may shift the following contents (Footer 2) outside the visible area. On a screen which runs on 250% scaling, the default font size may be 30 to 80 pixel perhaps. 4K is not a problem, I use 4K screens myself. The highest scaling I use is 200% for testing but I don't see any ill effects in the file window layouts.
