Change text size in classic 5

Lee Fisher shared this question 7 months ago

Hello - I've downloaded classic 5 on my mac and my pc, and I have the same text size issue on both. I can sometimes change the text size (object properties) and sometimes not. I ask for large, but it does not change, so I close down the file, reopen and then I can change the font size. Any insight?

Thanks

I am sorry, but cannot replicate the issue in version 5 for Windows. (both using the stylebar and the Properties window of the text)

Let's see if some Mac user can test it.

Hi Simona, Michael - here's a link to a 1 min video - on this video, I've opened my file (I'm on Mac, using the version on image below) - I've changed my text from small to medium - all good, but the next time I want to change the text size I'm not able to do so. Again, if I close the file and reopen, I can change the text size. This occurs when I use my pc at school too, I guess I downloaded Geogebra Classic 5 onto that in September this year.

I'm using Geogebra 5.0.541. I can't change the text size more than one textbox. If I change the text size, say in textbox1 from small to medium, and it works. But then I try to do the same in another textbox, say textbox2, the text size in textbox2 remains small. I find that the problem occurs after version 5.0.414. My system is Windows 7, 32-bit. The same happens to my other system Windows 10 64-bit.

On Windows 10, GeoGebra 5.0.542 Classic (installed) it works fine, both with plain, LaTeX, and mixed dynamic texts.

No joy. The same problem occurs with Geogebra 5.0.542 on my Windows 10 machine. See attached snapshot. Anything amiss?

Here is the .ggb file. When I closed the file and reloaded it, I could change the font size of another textbox, but only one. When I tried to change another one, it doesn't work.

I can change the text sizes, but it takes a while :)


It works immediately as long as you click into an empty area of the Graphics View after selecting the new text size.

That's a bit odd, maybe related to the tool that you have in your construction?

Do you have the same issue when placing texts in a new, empty ggb file?

Thanks for the file - very helpful! We've fixed the bug for next release


(in the meantime, try closing the spreadsheet)

Closing the spreadsheet has no effect - I still can't change the text size more than once. Thanks a lot for your help. I can wait for the next release.
