Many thanks for the response.
Here, NS #2136 behaves correctly, however NS #2190 doesn't.
I think that the problem has something to do with the font size. In
Choices > Fonts, the default, and minimum, font sizes are both 12 pt.
file:///NetSurf:/Resources/en/welcome.html opens at 100% scale but
fonts, apart from the headline, are displayed at 14 pt, however it seems
that the locations of the active areas may have been determined assuming
a display 12 pt. This results in the active areas being displaced to the
left, and upwards. Both displacements are proportional to the distance
from the top-left corner of the page.
Increasing the display scale to 110% causes the fonts to be displayed
12 pt and the active areas then match the link locations. Reverting to
100% scale causes the fonts to become smaller than 12 pt, but the active
areas still match the link locations.
Other pages are also affected, but a workaround seems to be to
/decrease the display scale.
That's interesting Tony.
I played around with the Def Font sizes, including to match yours but it
didn't make any difference, NS #2190 continued to work okay.
Not much help I appreciate, but worth noting.
BTW. My computer Font manager is "EasyFont Pro" Version 5.18u.
