ASL font requester

Post by chris »

Please can a tag be added to ASL for the "font size" section to be removed. In some software dealing with outline fonts, it is completely unnecessary (eg. the OS font management tool)
The same action needs to be taken with getfont.gadget.

But it allows the user to see what the fonts look like at different font sizes so it's not entirely useless, is it?

True, but if you're passing 0 as the font size you then have to fiddle with the size to see anything (and it looks like the user is required to select a size, which isn't necessarily the case). It would be better if it defaulted to showing at a sensible size, or a range of sizes, if this tag was specified.
It's more of a problem with getfont.gadget, where it shows a size that means nothing and could cause confusion.
