The pixel pusher strikes again - Title bar change wish
« on: January 28, 2012, 11:17:23 PM »
I've made a new set of window bar icons. Besides stylistic confusion, it appears to me as if the text in the title bar would look better if it was drawn one pixel more downwards. I assume this is problematic with other skins, but I want to ask for opinions on this wish anyways. Thanks for reading :)

This is problematic with japanese and chinese characters, that use the full 11 pixels.

I guessed so that it will be difficult. No problem :)

I've noticed the different fonts have differing vertical alignments. Makes it even harder to layout the dialogs for all languages. If someone were to have the inclination to edit all the fonts for vertical consistency, that would be a great help.

We could switch over to unicode completely, as all the current fonts are available as unicode fonts. Also I am not sure why the alignmet became different. In priciple, BDF should give the same alignment. But did not find time to try this.
