Font and spacing used for URL links on right in main window absurdly large #329

In the main window, everything looks fine except that the font and spacing used for URLs on the right is ridiculously large. Only Pass is visible without scrolling and there is so much space I didn't initially realise there was anything to scroll to. The other interface elements (toolbar text and icons, contents of password store on left side etc.) are unaffected. Unlike the problems with the config dialogue, this issue doesn't block normal usage, but it is ugly and rather confusing at first. I assume that QtPass is ignoring system-wide font settings for the right hand pane, for some reason. However, I'm not sure about this - that's just what it looks like.

Hi @cfr42 I can't seem to reproduce this on Mac, Windows or Linux (KDE and Cinnamon).

Could you make a screenshot, since I'm guessing from your previous issue #328 you are using KDE(5) plasma on Arch.
I'll give that combination a go (to reproduce this issue) as soon as I can manage to find some time.

Thanks in advance!

Does it look something like the examples in #278?

I can confirm this. But what I observe is not similar to #278 and it happens with KDE under openSUSE Tumbleweed on a FullHD- and a HighDPI-Screen (Different machines). It started with 1.2.0, screenshot are below.


I fixed that issue myself with the following patch:

diff -up ./QtPass-1.2.0/main/main.cpp.highdpi ./QtPass-1.2.0/main/main.cpp

I'm seeing the exact same thing as @hgraeber. Just hooked up my 4K monitor on openSuse Tumbleweed and qtpass is looking pretty awful - just like those screenshots.

@annejan, have you taken a look at that patch above?

I can confirm with the above patch, QtPass displays as expected. Thanks @hgraeber!
