Locked Re: "Bug" Report - Release Candidate WSJT-X 2.6.0-rc1 #IssueReport #windows11 #mainscreen

I think part of the problem may be here -- setting maximum width without knowing the scaling seems like like a potential problem.Maybe this should be minimum width and minimum height?
  if (pointSize < 12) {      ui->houndButton->setMaximumWidth(40);      ui->ft8Button->setMaximumWidth(40);      ui->ft4Button->setMaximumWidth(40);      ui->msk144Button->setMaximumWidth(40);      ui->q65Button->setMaximumWidth(40);      ui->jt65Button->setMaximumWidth(40);

Another important hint: If you change the font size and there are problems with the layout, then restart WSJT-X once. The automatic switching of the button width requires a one-time restart of the program!

I have just tested this again. It works fine on my computer. I personally use "MS Shell Dlg 2" as font. I can set for example 8 pt or even 16 pt and after the said restart the GUI scales as it should. See the following screenshots:
