Bug Font size issue under 2880x1800 resolution

Hi there,

I was using resolution 1440 x 900 with fullscreen mode and everything was working pretty well, but today I got some font size issue while trying 2880 x 1800 (max window mode does not allow me change resolution, it is only this super large resolution, no idea why).

UI auto scale makes everything really small so I disabled that and manually input UI scale parameter to 0.96, all the frame and most fonts return to the same sizes to what I used to see under 1440 x 900, but there are quite some places are still using small fonts (seems like they are still under 2880 x 1800):
1. all the fonts in the bottom bar
2. all the item amount count font in bag, in action bar, etc..
3. key name in action bar
4. buff remaining time
5. all the fonts in bag header bar (search and gold count)
6. chat channel name on top of chat content area (content font is ok)

I thought this could be a global issue for all the ShestakUI elements but some of them are alright, such as all the mouse over hints.

Could you please kindly help to locate the root cause? Your support is really appreciated!

ShestakUI version:
6.0.3

WoW version:
7.0.3.22566

Installed and running addons:
1. ShestakUI
2. DBM
3. Details
4. TidyPlates

Screenshot(if that matters for error):

It does matter but I couldn't find anywhere allows me to upload screenshots ..

Lua error code(if that matters for error):
How to reproduce error:

It's all pixel font. I don't think that it's can be scaled without graphical issues. You can just change font https://github.com/Shestak/ShestakUI...gs.lua#L14-L16

Thanks a lot for the help!

I tried to change Pixel.ttf to Normal or Blank, but neither of them works, the font in game is still super small. I even tried to specify a ttf (using my name) which does not exist, then /rl in the game I was expecting some lua error popup, but nothing happened and fonts remain tiny..

sorry for my stupidity that I am no expert on fonts and might be doing something wrong..

You should change this line, example:
https://github.com/Shestak/ShestakUI...gs.lua#L14-L16
lua Code [Select]:
["pixel_font"] = [[Interface\AddOns\ShestakUI\Media\Fonts\Normal.ttf]],   -- Pixel font
    ["pixel_font_style"] = "",                    -- Pixel font style("OUTLINEMONOCHROME" or "OUTLINE")
    ["pixel_font_size"] = 10,                                          -- Pixel font size for those places where it is not specified
 
And fully restart the game.
Say Thank:

I uploaded 2 screenshots:

1. http://savepic.ru/11324259.jpg, under 2880 x 1800
2. http://savepic.ru/11297634.jpg, under 1440 x 900

Sorry for the Chinese chars in them.

This afternoon I figured out how to use 1440 x 900 with max window mode so this is no longer a blocking issue for me (it was indeed because I love ShestakUI never wanted to change to others). But still it would be perfect to get it fixed

Again, thanks for your support!

It doesn't make any difference either.. do I have to restart the game client or just /rl would reloads the changes of lua?

sorry, missed your last line, fully restarting game client..

no luck... with fully restarting the game, it's still tiny font.

Also, you can try delete this line https://github.com/Shestak/ShestakUI...ct.lua#L31-L46
It happen, because you should set UI scale 0.426. Not 0.96.

Sorry for late reply!

Changing scale to 0.426 works quite well, the UI views are a little bit small but still ok, thanks a lot!!

Hi again,

I see basically all other bugs are marked as fixed. Do I need to mark this bug as fixed? But I can't find how..
