Love it!  Especially the new Page Editor AKA Advance Layout Tool with the max screen capability, and the new floating text feature so that I can now see what I am doing as I do it. Also like the little down arrow to go directly to the page editor.

Mike, the size of the text in the ‘floating text properties’, that is in the box under ‘enter your text below’, does not seem to change as UI size is increased.  Do I need to change text size some other place?  On 4K monitor, it is real small.

That is intentional: the text in the dialog should always be the same size otherwise you will run into situations where you can't read it.  For example, you may be working with very large prints and you need a large font size in which case the font in the dialog may be so big that you can only see a few characters at a time.  Conversely when working with small fonts, you don't want them to be so small you can't see them.  That is why we have a dialog in the first place and you don't just type directly on the page: you want to be able to see what you are typing (see below).

The font size on that dialog is the same as the font size everywhere else in Qimage: if that is too small then you have your UI size set too small.  For 4K monitors, your UI size (under Edit, Preferences) should be at least 200%.

Regards,
Mike

I was not talking about changing with font changes, I agree with you there.

I have changed UI size to 125% & 150% and did not see any change to the size of text IN the box (white space). The info text of the properties window did change.

EDIT:  just tried 200% (which, to me, is too large).  The text in ‘enter your text…’ box stayed the same (small) size.
EDIT2: If you eventually scale the size of text in box with the UI, you may want to scale the box itself, accordingly.

You're right!  The entire dialog and all the controls within it rescale per the chosen UI size but the text in the typing box does NOT.  That is definitely not as intended!  Will fix that in the next release.

Thanks for clarification.

Could you post a screen shot showing what you are talking about?  I can't make heads or tails out of what you just said.  The dialog always appears to the right of the previewed page and even if it was on top of what you were typing, you can move the dialog anywhere you like on the screen.  Furthermore, you can still use the dialog just like you did in previous versions: just type in the dialog box and move/place the text afterward.  Hopefully a screen shot would help me make sense of what you are talking about.

Regards,
Mike

They are there: I see them on your screen shot but they're just light on the (light colored) skin you are using.  Before, they were not visible on the default dark skin but now they are low contrast on the light colored skins.  I'll have to see if I can reach some sort of compromise.

Thanks, Mike, I know where they are now so it's not a big issue for me.
