Desktop icons resize upon using MainType

Post by damionm » Wed Sep 12, 2007 4:28 pm

Hello,

For some reason, when I'm using MainType, my desktop icons will resize by themselves and it's really annoying. I have them set to 48x48, but when I use MainType, they resize down to 16x16 by themselves. Is this just something with my particular video card maybe? I have a Nvidia GeForce FX 5200. I have the latest video drivers installed for the card, and I only have this issue when MainType is indexing and displaying fonts in the program. Is this a known problem? Thanks :-)

Are you using a Mac, PC, Windows 3.1?

You are the first who found this hidden feature! Now that it is no longer a secret, I better mention it on the website ;-)

Just kidding, I've never heard of this awkward side effect. I like to reproduce it, but need more information. What version of Windows do you use? What version of MainType? How do you set the icon size? Can you show us a screenshot?

I believe I've found the problem. It seems to have something to do with the current (or then current) video driver (version/build) that I was using for my graphics card. I've installed an older video driver, and I haven't seen a repeat of that scenario since.
