Summary0010878: Help Browser font size depends on menu settings
DescriptionI've tested the Help Browser on various platforms, and no matter how readable the menu entries looked like, the contents of the Help Browser were mostly unreadable.

Please add an option to separately enlarge the font/display size of the Help Browser content, which, I am sure, is supported by Qt-Webkit.

At a minimum, it should be possible to enlarge the font size as in other web browsers, i.e., by using Ctrl+
TagsNo tags attached.

Cannot reproduce here. Also 1.4.x help browser does not use Qt-Webkit.

Using Qt-Webkit or not isn't the issue. The real problem is that the font size in the Help Browser depends on the size of the UI fonts. This connection needs a divorce, at least for Linux.

In 1.5 it's even worse. as it seems like the divorce actually happened, but the user cannot change the font size or the default font for the docs, so they're almost unreadable, at least on OpenSUSE.

See the uploaded screenshots.

Sorry but i tested 1.4.x and 1.5.x on OpenSuse 12.1 and docs are perfectly readable. And i do not see how your screenshot qualify as unreadable.

The font size is too small. That's why it's almost unreadable.

I also have a question: If Scribus doesn't use QtWebkit, why is does it have to be detected by Cmake?

-- QtWebkit Found OK ?

Anyway, I still think that it should be possible to configure the display mode of the online help separately and change the font size like in a web browser, e.g. via Ctrl-+ or Ctrl--.
