Wow, thanks for the quick answer.
As I'm on a macbook retina system I wonder if the upscaling of the font might somehow be broken.
It's a possibility, as I've never tested the program on a Mac retina (don't have one). But it's strange that there's a problem only with this text box, and that no other user has reported this problem. In fact, I think I've been in contact with several Mac retina owners and they didn't have this problem.
Could you please try some other skins to confirm that they all have the same problem.
I've tried the legacy light blue skin. Same problem. It affects any text box that allows you to enter text. Interestingly, when I open a tab containing such a text box, the text has the correct size for about one second and then doubles in size. Decreasing the font size via the skin editor doesn't help either. It decreases the text size as well as the height of the text box. So in the end the enlarged text is smaller but still too large for the now dwarfed text box.
I have several movies in different languages and would like to batch set the language.
What bothers me about batch editing is the batch selecting. In other words, how will you select which videos you want to edit?
About your language problem, my guess is that you've scanned your video files, and the language was set to "English" while you would have liked "Italian". You need to know that when you scan a file or add a video from scratch, the language field is set to the last value that you've used. If you add a video with "Italian" as the language, after that the language field will be set to "Italian" again when you'll scan new files.
My suggestion is to remove all your scanned files with the menu "Tools->Manage your video files->Batch delete several file associations", and to scan them again.
Your feedback makes me realize that I should modify the scanning feature. When you click the button "Add the recognized files", a dialog should tell you which language will be used, with the opportunity to change that value. What do you think? Do you like that solution?
The problem is that it's not only the language I'd like to batch set but also other info (e.g. media type, subtitles etc.).
I've given it a bit of thought and see basically two and a half potential solutions/workarounds.
option 1) You use the <scan your video files> option by a) letting the user - as you proposed - set the info they need when scanning files and b) allowing the rescan of already associated files, which would make it possible to update the info in the user database without removing the associated files first
option 2) Allow the user to create a custom list of movies (this would actually be a useful extra feature). The question is how do you select the movies?
either a) you put an "add to custom list" button in the search tabs (e.g. <movie filtered search>, <movie title search> etc.). This button adds the currently visible movie(s) to the custom list. This way groups of movies as well as single movies can be added to the custom list.
or b) you display e.g. check boxes with each movie. Checked movies can be added to the custom list and then edited.
Having the possibility to create a custom list of movies would actually be a cool extra feature
. I often find myself in the situation, that I have friends over and they ask for a selection of movies to choose from. A custom list would make things way easier.
Just putting in my five cents, Cheers
