text-scaling-factor snaps to nearest 1/10th fraction
Submitted by ste..@..il.com
Using gnome-tweak-tool to set text-scaling-factor causes the scaling factor to snap to the nearest 1/10th fraction. Example:
Setting 0.875 (84/96) will cause the value to snap to 0.9 in the following way:
- set 0.875 by typing
- visually, a scaling factor of 0.875 is set
- watch the value snap to 0.9 instantly
- watch the visual effect snap to 0.9 when gnome-tweak-tool is closed or another category is selected within gnome-tweak-tool
dconf does allow for a scaling factor with more decimals, it can be correctly set through dconf-editor.
As to why this is usefull: GNOME hardcodes 96 DPI, users with non 96 DPI screens may want to use the scaling factor to match their LCD's native DPI. Setting a scaling factor representative of 84 DPI is currently not possible through gnome-tweak-tool.
I would suggest to completely remove the snapping when a value is typed in.
