Jumping text in Balsa "To:" field
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:23:50 EDT
Description of Problem:
In "Compose" of Balsa when writing recipient in "To:" field of a new
message a typed text jumps right and left apparently depending on
a number of characters typed. This may depend on a choice of fonts
but it happens at least with
but not, for example, with
If one will type spurious characters to force a text to jump
left then these extras can be erased and the text will stay left.
I did not observe anything like that in other entry fields
(but, come to think of it, I did not try 'Cc:').
The same effect was also observed on another system where some
other fonts were used (some courier, I think).
BTW - a choice of a default font is pretty terrible (unreadable
on most displays) and it is not really obvious how to change these.
I can't reproduce the font jumping in balsa-1.2.1-1, which will be in rawhide
soon. It also has a somewhat better default font (of course, that's always in
the eye of the beholder. :) )
Yes, indeed. An absence of wildly jumping strings seems to be a difference
between balsa-1.1.7-5, as included in Enigma-RC2, and balsa-1.2.1-1.
As for defaults fonts they seem to be now indeed only "tiny" instead
of "unreadable". :-)
