SetLineThickness can not change a slider size any more

Why isn't it possible any more, to change the size of a slider (inclusive his point)?

This has been possible since V. 5.0.280 and has been very imortant, to display a useful slider on a smart phone.

Now, the slider size is fixed - and is too small for handling on a smart phone display.

Sorry, it was a bug that allowed SetLineThickness to work for sliders.


Sliders work fine for me on phones. If you have an example where they don't please post it

Hello Michael,

I didn't say that the slider on phones do not work, but the point is often too small to move it by fingertip.

It's a pity, that this has been a bug! Is there any possibility to change the slider-point size?

How easy / hard it is to use a slider does not depend on how it looks, what matters is the "hit area". This area is much bigger on touch devices (3x bigger than for mouse). Also lately we've made sure that when your click / tap belongs to "hit area" of a slider and e.g. a line, the slider has higher priority to get selected. This should help in some files. If you have some examples that don't work well for you on a phone, please send a link. We may try to further improve the algorithms related to the hit areas. Thanks!

Hi, I really do wonder, why that was considered a "bug"! Having the freedom to choose the line thickness for a slider - and even it is "only" for optical reasons - seems quite a useful feature to me. I wish this bug would be reimplemented.
