Title: Simulator resizing
Post by: Corvus Lusor on February 11, 2015, 07:55:31 AM
The simulator is good for testing features and themes, but when it comes to designing themes, things can get very tyring, especially for players with a tiny screen. I dare you to stay for an hour improving a theme's design on a tiny window. Your eyes will stark blinking and you'll eventually become blind. :)
So, maybe a resizing feature (1x, 2x and 3x, for example) would help out. I didn't find anything about this, but I think it would be a nice addition.

It's just an idea, anyway, feel free to keep or scrap it.

This is an excellent idea. So excellent in fact that it's been implemented already!

(hint: use --zoom <your desired zoom factor>)

Oh, right! That's great! :)

But accessing this feature should be more intuitive (I think). I tried right clicking everywhere on the user interface to no avail because it's only available with the command line. I couldn't guess, but at least I know, now. Thank you.
