Characters become smaller after installing AB 11 build 26!

Post by matsuda0707 » Tue Apr 14, 2009 4:24 pm

After installing AB 11 build 26 today, the characters (fonts) look smaller than those of previous version (build 23). I did not change any preferences of AB.
Also the tab blinks after installing Google tool bar 6.x!!!!

The fonts of pages (not titles) become smaller (maybe 10 - 20 % smaller).

Go to Tools > Avant Browser Options > New Window, make sure Always create new window with zoom size is set to 100% and also under View > Zoom. Also check View > Text Size is Medium...

noticed that too

I thought the new borwser resetted my font size too

They are probably recreating the issues themselves and will get back to u soon. I always give response teams a day or so to respond to a problem.

What is your screen resolution (DPI) set to?

Also please post your system information.. OS, IE version etc.

Thanks for reply!

1. I have set screen resolution (DPI) to 120 DPI since the previous versions and builds.
2. My system is Vista 32 SP1, IE 8.0.

I am now still using build 23. I think this is the first experience since I started to use AB before 2000!

It most likely has something to do with the DPI because a bug with the tabs bar was fixed for users using higher than normal DPI's.

I use font size/large - dpi/large(120dpi) and things are OK now but in a very early release I had a few problems which Anderson sorted out.

Today I installed IE8 and Avant's font size is now smaller than before. My other browsers (IE8, SlimBrowser, MaxthonC, Firefox) are all the same as before IE8, so something is odd with Avant.
I have Avant zoom=100% and text size=medium.

I've just installed IE8 on another PC and Avant's font size is normal on this one. So there's something else going on here. Will post back if I find anything.

Sounds like corrupted settings, try Tools >> Avant Browser Options >> Load Default

I am the original reporter of this problem. This character size problem can not be fixed by default resetting. As I reported this with my screenshots, it is not so difficult to find out the cause and fix it!
The other problem of my previous report (tab character, that is page name, is shown in lower position) is fixed in AB build 26 without any release note, and I thisn these both problems might be related because they are related in font size also.
Please report the current status of this problem!

I've added this to the bug tracker,
http://forum.avantbrowser.com/tracker.php?p=1&t=304

ABman, are both of those PCs Vista? I can't confirm this in XP.
