Hey, I have an issue with magic... My display is quite low resolution and a couple options for creating a nmos / pmos device are out of my screen and I cant get to fit them onto my screen so that I can press the create button. Why isnt there a scollbar? Or are there other ways to decrease the font size of magic? (OS is Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon on a 1366 x 768 resolution)
The only solution that I found is to decrease the entire font size multiplier for the entire os...

You can try making a home
.magicrc
file with the contents
Copy code
set Opts(scale) 0.5
set Opts(toolscale) 0.5
or some combination of scales that works best. I have only tried this on a laptop with a ultra-high-resolution display, so my goal was to fix things in the opposite direction, where all the fonts and icons came out too tiny to see. You can also run from the command line
.params.buttons.apply invoke
to force a button push. A scrollbar is relatively straightforward to add; just requires an additional level of frames. I haven't had time to work on it, and nobody has volunteered.

I went ahead and implemented the scrollbar, since it's probably the most commonly requested feature. (Magic version 8.3.378)

Another solution that usually works on Linux is to press and hold the "Alt" key on the keyboard, and then to click and drag a window around, so that you can see the parts that were outside the screen.

@Philipp G├╝hring: I would assume that solution is window-manager-specific.

Yes, definitely. But until now it worked with most window managers on Linux. But thanks for adding the scrollbars too!

There comes a point where it becomes easier to just go fix a problem rather than continuing to describe to people how to work around it. That one definitely crossed the threshold.
