Description flklb-bugs 2023-04-14 21:34:56 UTC
Since 7.4.0.0 I noticed an increased frame thickness of the selected cell cursor (2px -> 3px), which looks a bit odd to me; it also makes some cells harder to read.

Can the thickness be configured somewhere? I cannot seem to find a setting for this.

That was by design, the cursor now scales with the zoom level, and is even on either side of the border. See bug 143733.
Can you share a screenshot where it makes cells harder to read?

Heiko, there's no expert configuration to change it, is there?

I see.

Well, I can add a screenshot of a trivial example. The "2" gets cut off slightly (which is not a big issue, but I would say its suboptimal). Zoom level is 100%.

Thank you, I see the same at 100% zoom.

Some options:
- follow bug 108240 for an alternative that would draw outside of cell and border
- turn this into an enhancement request that asks for a setting that gives more control (thickness as a percentage of default? choose between proportional and not proportional? - but not sure if it will be picked up
Comment 7 Heiko Tietze 2023-07-28 11:45:32 UTC
There is no config switch or expert setting for this. I suggest to follow the mentioned ticket => DUP. Or challenge the decision/patch on bug 143733 ultimately asking to revert / make optional.
Comment 8 flklb-bugs 2023-07-28 12:44:45 UTC
Ok, thank you. Reopened bug 143733 now.
