I WOULD DONATE MONEY for an increase text size option

Post by Johnnybender »

The text size in the Main Window and Inspector is just too small when viewed on a television from my couch.

I’d love to be able to double the current size of text everywhere.

I’ve tried that. Toggling it on and off was annoying.

I was hoping a text increase option would be easy to implement and that the good development folks would appreciate some beer money. ;)

I’m sure there are a ton of transmission fans that use the app on a big screen tv from a couch like me.

Even more than people using a TV from a couch, are people using 4K / 5K monitors. I just set up a Dell U4021, which is beautiful. I found a way to scale Firefox; Mail.app is easy to set fonts for. Transmission is recalcitrant.

The OS scaling the entire desktop isn't a good solution. One buys a monitor like this both for smoother text without pixelation, but moreover so that certain applications can enjoy more pixels. In my case, Lightroom and watching movies. Choosing a lower "resolution" (sic) for the entire desktop is counter to the purpose.
