macOS 10.11-10.13: tool tips truncated
S4 - Minor
Tool Tips on macOS are truncated at around 25-26 characters using the default font.
OS: OS X El Capitan (10.11), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 3.4.0., revision: 9c1b6fc
An example: File -> Parts… -> hover over buttons All Parts / Single Part
- New part for each instrum
- New part for single instrum
- New part for each instrument
- New part for single instrument
Preferences -> General -> (under Theme) Font face: change from ".SF NS Text" to "Tahoma"
Regression: yes, displays full tool tip in 2.3.2 by default (2.3.2 does not have the ability to change the font)
Noticed this as well.
Works for me (see full texts for those two buttons) in macOS 10.15, Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 18.104.22.16889, revision: 684f74e
I have this problem on OS: macOS High Sierra (10.13), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 22.214.171.12412, revision: 7684abe
Adding the Concert Pitch button tool tip (since what is truncated seems relative to the full string length (e.g. as a percentage) rather than an absolute character limit (e.g. 25/26 as I initially thought)
Full string (shown correctly when switching Tahoma font)
New part for each instrument
New part for selected voices/instruments (string was recently changed, as seen in 3.4Beta)
Switch between concert/sounding pitch and transposing/written pitch
Result (when using ".SF NS Text" font, initially or switching back)
New part for each instrum # 3 chars truncated
New part for selected voices/instrum # 3 chars truncated
Switch between concert/sounding pitch and transposing/writ # 9 chars truncated
When you switch back to ".SF NS Text", the tool tips truncate again (change is immediate, no app restart required)
Indicating versions where this is confirmed to be an issue. May change as reports for certain version come in.
