           Summary: distorted diagrams on screens with different pixel size
           Product: umbrello
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Gentoo Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: umbrello-devel.kde.org
        ReportedBy: pmj110 york ac uk

Version:           1.2.2 (using KDE KDE 3.2.3)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.3 20040412 (Gentoo Linux 3.3.3-r6, ssp-3.3.2-2, pie-8.7.6)
OS:                Linux

I created a bunch of diagrams on my desktop system, and since I'm now away from home, I'm working on my laptop. My Laptop and Desktop have wildly different screen dpi setups (desktop: 17" CRT 1024x768, laptop 15" TFT 1600x1200) so the fonts are quite different, and all text appears quite large on my laptop. The problem is that this also considerably blows up all the classes, activites, etc., to such an extent that they overlap. The problem is alleviated if I manually (have to do it for every single one!) change the fonts of each item in the diagram to size 6 instead of 10, but umbrello doesn't seem to save that information in the .xmi file.

As a quick fix, how about a scaling factor for the font size in the settings dialog? It's not the correct way of doing things I'm sure, but that would probably involve considerable changes.
