BigWigs Bossmods

686 - Super emphasize and 4k display

What steps will reproduce the problem?

1. The super emphasize text is small on a 4k display, font size > 26 doesn't seem to scale at all.
2. The super emphasze text is smaller than the normal text (that seems to scale as it should with font size), and that is a bit odd.

What version of the Big Wigs are you using?

I am using r11772

Do you have an error log of what happened?

Please provide any additional information below. (example: localization of your client if not enUS or enGB)

    WoW looks amazing in 4k, the font scaling works really well. Basically, the interface difference from 1080p to 2160p is much improved sharpness, size is the same.

    However, I should be more clear when it comes to the BigWigs issue.

    I use the following standard options:

    BigWigs normal messages are sent through the BigWigs normal option. BigWigs emphasized messages are sent through the BigWigs emphasized option.

    I have set the font size to 40 for both (for testing purposes).

    The normal BigWigs messages have the size 40 as they should, however, the text sent through the emphasized option only has the size 26 (instead of 40).

    If I send the normal messages to the emphasized messages filter, they are also seen as size 26.

    The question is however, since BigWigs is able to show size 40 through normal filter, can this be done for the emphasized filter too?

    EDIT: Rerouting emphasized text through Mik's Scrolling Battle did the trick, text is now back to normal size also on 4k monitor.

    Font scaling is a WoW interface issue, not BigWigs. I'm surprised the interface doesn't look like total crap on 4k.
