Font size unaffected by output scale #206

Closed
opened 11 months ago by maringuu · 3 comments

Hey, thank you for creating foot!

I just started using it yesterday and wondered if it is intended that the font size does not change at all (which is cool but not desired in my case) when the wayland output scale changes.

In the docs I did't find anything about this.

So is this behavior intended? If yes it would be great if there was a way to change this.

The relevant part of my foot.ini is font = dejavusansmono:size=10
Thanks!

It is, kind of, mentioned here: https://codeberg.org/dnkl/foot#user-content-dpi-and-font-size

Foot will always use the monitor’s physical DPI value

So to answer your question, yes it is intentional.

However, this question/request has come up before. Let me see if I can come up with a POC to (optionally) apply the scale factor.
