How to resize a quest panel.

Hello,

I have a long quest panel but the text and the font size (Aa) button doesn't go all the way down.

I'm wondering if someone could give me a hint to where I could resize this?

This annoys me too. I'd love to know how to resize the panel so that all of the text fits in. There has to be a plugin for that, right?

as far as i know this problem occur because quest log is one of the windows that is not resizable in game. In last update when they added these buttons, they just position them on their place.

However, if you use custom skin, that makes your windows bigger, that will need to be updated to position these further down. For this to happen, you need to know the names of the items you want to change position. I am not aware of SSG releasing these yet, i have asked Cordovan last friday on stream and he said that seems like something they should be able to do.

Holidays coming, so unless some clever people dont figure out the names themselves, we might need to wait for quite some time.

Also it seems they are still doing some changes to the quest log, todays update for example stopped showing quest objectives, also noticed today "show history" button, not sure when that got in. So they might not want to release them before they are not done with it.

Hi!

Thanks for the help 4andreas.

If anybody sees this and knows how to make the Quest Panel the original size that would be a solution too. I have no idea what I'm doing.

Thanks.

I use Extended and enhanced panels and have the same problem with the Quest Log. I've reported it there in the Comments but I'm not sure if there will be a fix, at least until SSG decide whether they're keeping this or not.

The part about this new "feature" in the Update 23.1.7 notes shows:

"BETA: The Quest Log and Quest Bestowal panels now support dynamic font resizing. To resize text, either press on the increase/decrease font size buttons on the bottom left of each panel, or hold down the Control key and use the Mouse Scroll Wheel when hovering over the panel text. This change will only persist during the current client session, and may be replaced by a different solution in the future."

The interesting part is the bit at the end where it says this "may be replaced by a different solution in the future." which might put addon authors off "fixing" it until SSG decide whether it's permanent or being replaced.

Hello everyone

A Lotro client update has introduced this issue in the larger edition of the quest book.

I can't work on a fix unless/until SSG releases an update of the skinning pack or communicate the new lines of code embedded in the updated quest book.

Let me know if you have new information (and preferably by PM if you want a quick reaction from me).

PS : Unfortunately plugins or user made skins don't have the ability to resize the regular game panels at the fly.
