Hi, is it possible while the GUI is scaled to 80%, to increase the font size of the instant details? 

Thank you!

The popup information size is not affected by scaling or font size adjustment in the tab.

Rather by what? Is there a way to increase it?

No - add a suggestion to FeedBear (faithlife.com)

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

No, it is not currently possible. As MJ pointed out, it would be a good thing to suggest on the Feedback forum.

In the meantime, perhaps you could find some screen magnifier software that can pin a magnifying rectangle to a fixed position on the screen. You could pin it to the lower left of your Hebrew Bible window, where your red arrow is pointing. Then you could move your mouse around and that instant detail text would be magnified.

I think in the meantime I will just use Accordance Wink

What about the Information tool? Does the pop up information you need also show up there?

Changing Program Scaling on macOS changes size of information pop-up:

Logos 9.2 RC 1 tab scaling (three dots => largest Font Size) on macOS Big Sur 11.1 also causes information pop-up size increase

At the risk of hijacking a thread:  Is there a threshold of obviousness below which Faithlife doesn't require a user suggestion to fix or improve?

Tool => Information has all the instant details pop-up stuff (plus Information font size can be scaled)

One obvious threshold is application crashes, which get fixed quickly. Beyond crashes is an intriguing threshold question.

Thankful for many friendly forum & Faithlife discussions: have learned a lot plus have a lot to learn Big Smile

No, if you remember that Faithlife staff are users.

The information tool is as slow as a snail.

I haven’t noticed that, although I do have mine set to Click rather than Hover, and have closed Information tool sections I am not interested in seeing.

Does that make a difference for you?

What's obvious to some might never have occurred to others.

Collapsing Information Tool sections improves responsiveness. Caveat: Lexham Hebrew Bible pop-up always appears instantly while Word Info is usually quick with click that also highlights corresponding lemma in Lexham English Bible

Screen shot shows a floating window with Information Tool set to a larger font having Word Info section expanded (others collapsed for faster response on 27" iMac having 3.6GHz Intel Core i9 with 64GB Ram & fast 1TB SSD)

I didn't try this yet but it won't satisfy me since it uses to much of valuable space on my small screen . The poup information is a great thing, exactly what I need, but 50 x bigger ;)
