    Label Options Bug

    I have a small bug with Labels.
    If i set from LEFT to SCROLL and scale my skin with general.ini bigger than real size. the label height don't scale.
    LEFT = all is fine
    SCROLL = height of Label don't scale. the text gets a cut on the bottom.

    I think its working correctly

    you're using a really really big font, I think the font scale is the issue
    and prob how windows scales fonts!

    try it at same size

    OriginalWidth=1066
    OriginalHeight=600
    ShowWidth=1066
    ShowHeight=600

    and you will see that it doesn't fit
    oddly a specified height of 50, results in a 75px need to draw the Arial font
    and the usual label while you set the height to 50, is actually turning into 75
    this is all related to a font sizing issue and its a known issue apparently

    so change to

    L,020,100,450,075,0,0,0,50,"Arial","=SCROLL-LABEL","SCROLL",,""

    note 75 tall

    and if you want that drop shadow the label needs more space use 80 then

    *for basic labels, rr does this resize for you... I let you know more when I understand why rr
    is specifically not automatically fitting the font, more I think about it, it prob shouldn't anyway
    if you specify a font too big for label, that's your fault
    but as you can see textheight doesn't equal label size, so you cant just drop in numbers
    prob related to font kerning
    can rr be made to auto fit the font for scrolls, yet...
    but before I do, I need to see why its explicitly told not to

    L,550,100,450,10,0,0,0,50,"Arial","=USUAL-LABEL","LEFT",,"DS=2,2,80,80,80"

    both labels have the same size and font-size.
    but in illustration exist differences.
    the fontsize 50 is just an example. the issue exist with 16 too.

    my complete skin is created in 1066x600. But i want use it with 1366x768, because some windows like window screen settings does not fit in screen by heigt 600. can't see the ok or cancel button.

    I meant to take out that big font stuff, size of font not matter

    a font of say 20, doesn't fit into a label sized 20
    you need the label bigger!

    also consider drop shadow adds to size a few px

    so.. make label area bigger so font will fit
    then all is good

    there isn't, except... non scroll rr will resize it

    try my example

    L,550,100,450,10,0,0,0,50,"Arial","=USUAL-LABEL","LEFT",,"DS=2,2,80,80,80"

    this says 10, but clearly the whole font is there.. so how did it fit 50(which turns out to be 75) to fit?
    rr resizes improperly done labels

    I don't have an answer that makes sense, but what you have to do on ALL labels, is make it look right
    if its right, it will scale...

    in this case

    L,550,100,450,80,0,0,0,50,"Arial","=USUAL-LABEL","LEFT",,"DS=2,2,80,80,80"

    80 since I got drop shadow too
