Description Tin Man 2013-02-17 14:23:47 UTC
Right now, when the icon size is set to large, the toolbar icons get bigger, but the dropdown buttons and the combo boxes inside toolbars stay the same size, which results in an incohesive look.

It'd be great if the height of these toolbar elements could be automatically adjusted to match the set icon size.
Operating System: All
Version: Master
Comment 1 Joel Madero 2013-02-19 03:38:40 UTC
I see your point. For reproducible steps:

1. Open writer
2. Tools - Options - View
3. Set icon size to large
4. Click Ok

You'll see the icon change size, if not adjust the scaling and play around with the icon size (small vs. large). 

Result: Dropdown arrows and combo boxes stay the same size

Expected: Should see them scale appropriately

Marking as: 
New (confirmed)
Low (only for visual cohesiveness, not much in terms of making productivity faster or better)

Thanks for the report!

Making an Easy Hack from this - for the code pointers, please check

Comment 3 Björn Michaelsen 2013-10-04 18:46:53 UTC
adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.

see e.g. http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/minutes-of-ESC-call-td4076214.html for details

Mirek: Looking at this now, I am actually not sure what you mean :-)  Can you add here a screenshot & mockup what to improve?

The combo boxes have size according to the default font size, so I don't think we should change them according to the icon size.  Drop down buttons seem to become smaller / larger according to the icon size.

Thank you!
