Hey all,

I recently downloaded version 5.05.07 and am now stumbling over a problem that unfortunately makes oStorybook unusable on my system (Kubuntu Linux 22.04):
Immediately upon opening the interface seems to be using a huge font size that does not even allow me to change any preferences, let alone do anything useful. Here's a screenshot of the problem:

I'm guessing this is due to some Java setting. I'm using...

openjdk version "11.0.17" 2022-10-18
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.17+8-post-Ubuntu-1ubuntu222.04)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 11.0.17+8-post-Ubuntu-1ubuntu222.04, mixed mode, sharing)

Any idea, how I could my the software usable again? Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello,

First of all you should use the development version, because version 5.05.07 has some bugs.


Concerning the font size, there have been changes recently to meet the needs of high definition screens. To change the font, and also the size of the icons, go to the preferences, on the tab "Look & Feel" you will find everything you need.

Thank you for the quick reply.
Well, that is exactly my problem: I cannot change the font size in the preferences, because the font size is so huge that I cannot read anything there. Please look at the screenshot that shows the problem:

By the way, the problem is also present in 5.05.06. Will try the development version soon...

UPDATE: I would like to install the development version, but don't know, where to find it...?

Remove your oStorybook.ini (localized in the ~/.storybook5 folder)

Ah, removing the .ini file helped, thanks a lot. My font size is now back to normal. :)
Will try the development version next.
