Is there a preference to change the size of buttons used to scroll through sheet tabs? Currently, I have to point almost at the right pixel to hit it.

Unfortunately not. What Wing version do you have and on what OS? I think there were problems w/ high dpi screens at one point, causing these to shrink, but I thought that is fixed now.

OK, thanks anyway. I'm using v7.2.7. I usually try to keep the number of tabs down so scrolling isn't required, but it's frustrating when that isn't possible due to splitting screens side by side. It isn't possible to set a hot key to scroll tabs, is it?

There isn't a command to scroll tabs, but you can use Ctrl-Tab to switch between files, use the Window menu, or set a hotkey to the Wing switch-document command that will switch to a file by name.

OK, understood. It would be very helpful if users could assign hotkeys to enable this, e.g. ctrl-arrows to scroll. Thanks.

BTW, I can replicate the problem on Windows w/ Wing 7 on a high DPI display. I thought at first it was caused by setting a custom scaling in Window Settings but clearing that does not seem to help The problem is not there in the Wing 8 code base, which is still in early access at We'll try to fix this in Wing 7 but the fix may be contingent on upgrading Qt, which isn't going to be possible in Wing 7.

OK, thanks for addressing this.
