Possible "Font UI Size" Bug in Photo 2.0.4 on macOS (Non-Retina Display)


Recommended Posts


When I have the Font UI Size to "Large", in the Layers panel/list, the descenders for applicable characters are cut off (e.g. for g, j, p, q, and y).

FYI, my display is non-retina (EIZO CG277). macOS 12.6.3.

Also, while some of the UI elements are larger, many do not change with a change to the Font UI Size setting, both text and icons.

Please consider addressing the sizing issue and the "descenders" issue. Thanks.
