Small Icons at the start menu

Post by AnBad » Sun Aug 26, 2018 8:16 am

Hello,
I have rearranged my Start-Menu. Now I have only big icons in it. Only when I am reduce the size of the Viewer into a smaller one then the icons switch into small ones. Is it possible to switch some of them into small icons even if I have a big window of the viewer?
I did not figure out how to do that.
Can someone help me.
Kind regards

Hi AnBad,

Thanks for the post, but I'm not sure I fully understand what you're seeing. Can you please send screen-shots?

Thanks,

Hi,
the question is, how can I change big icons (IM1.jpg) at the tap menu to small icons (IM2.jpg)?
Kind regards
Michael

Hello AnBad,

You can reduce the size of the icons by reducing the height of the concerning toolbar.

You can do this by placing the mousepointer upon the lower border of the toolbar and when you see changing the mouse pointer into a double arrow, press the mouse button and drag upwards.

More info about toolbars:

Hi,
this does not work. And further more its not the issue I am talking about.
Is it so difficult to understand?
Please read my question again. You might understand the problem.
Thank you.
Michael

Sorry Michael for the misunderstanding.
I hope I understood it correct this time ...

Myself, I do not know for sure if one can change the size of individual icons in PDF-XChange Editor.

Even though, there is an option to reduce the size of (all) large icons, via:
Customize Toolbars > Options-tab > Reduce large icons in toolbars

Thanks once again for the help Willy.

Indeed it seems like in some menus the smallest possible icon size is used for tools, and if you move the same tool to another place even in the same toolbar - a larger size is used.
I also do not see any way to control this, especially for custom toolbars created manually, so I will need to check with our devs how this can be achieved.
For the moment, please start with an existing toolbar where some of the Icons are small, and add new tools to the same section - and they should also be added with the smallest icon size.

Regards,
Stefan

Hello AnBad,

Unfortunately, we have not made any changes to this handling. The Size of the icons is dynamic based on the size of the window, If you wish for your icons to be reduced to the minimum size, you can reduce the width of the Editor window, otherwise, the application will attempt to fill as much space as possible with the existing tools, as an example:

As the total width of the Editor shrinks, the toolbars are resized and repositioned to better fit the available space, this applies to both custom toolbars, and the default ones.
I hope this helps!

Hello AnBad,

I am sorry to hear this, If you would like us to offer more assistance, we would appreciate more details than "it looks ugly". Objective opinions are very difficult to "resolve" and we will be much better able to offer solutions if you can specify exactly what about it is ugly to you.

Currently the only thing you have said is that the size of the icons is too large. Even if we were to reduce these icons to the minimum size, the toolbar would still be the same height, which I suspect is where the real complaint lies, yes? If you are looking to have a single bar that contains your most used tools in a single row, Might I instead suggest the "Classic UI"?

The Classic UI can be changed from a 3 row setup, to a single row setup by dragging the dividing line upwards (click this Gif to see it moving):

Does this help?
