improvement suggestions for the new About box

Description

There are several things that are not 100% perfect yet.

See the attached screenshot.

  1. "Padre:-" - either use a colon or a minus/dash.
  2. The text looks grey-ish - at least on Debian. It should just look normal. Too many different fonts on one screen is not a good thing, we currently have 5 different font combinations: normal, bold, grey, plus two different sizes of the Times-like font in the splash screen
  3. Arbitrary line break (too early)
  4. Arbitrary line breaks (too late)

(3) and (4) could be solved by putting the text into a widget that takes care of the line breaks itself.

There are no font changes in about dialog, only normal and bold used sparingly, all other issues are a result of translation.

Hi Kevin, thank you for the quick reaction. I do not think that the grey font is a result of translation, it looks the same in English (see second attached file).

comment:7 Changed 2 years ago by bowtie

as of r17947 the above about4alias.png is what the about dialog looks like.

in FBP/About.pm

the following dose NOT WORK IN UBUNTU just blanks

Wx::gettext("Created by G\x{e1}bor Szab\x{f3}"),

and let us not forget about the new placing of CLOSE button,

All of the above could simply be avoided if it was checked on another platform, before commitment:)

With my configuration, the problem in about4alias.png does not occur.
At r17962.
