So I just downloaded Shotcut on my new Laptop with Linux Mint 20. I have the problem that the size of the window from shotcut is a little bit too high and I cant drag it down further becuase it gives me the limit of 581 pixels height. The issue with this is that I cant use the bar to move the position of the Video/Audio Track since its no there cause of the height. (see screenshot). Then there is the option to change the timeline bar to a higher version but than other options from the shotcut surface are covered.
Can anyone help me to change the window so that I can use the bar to change the position from the Video/Audio Tracks?
I hope you understood my imperfect english.
I do not understand it either. In any case there is a minimum height to the timeline by design since it is a very important UI element and too many users get confused if it is too short. If you do not want to see the timeline temporarily, close the panel. Closing the panel does not remove the timeline from the project. Then, click Timeline on the main toolbar or in the View menu to reopen it.
The somewhat old version of Qt used in the portable, AppImage, and Snap have issues with Hi DPI on Linux. That is a factor in your screenshot. The Flatpak is using a very new version of Qt, which is better in this regard. Or you can try the command line option: --QT_SCALE_FACTOR 1 or --QT_SCALE_FACTOR 2
OK thank you all for your quick amswers. Yep @MusicalBox I meant the scrollingbar. Recising the window doesnt work since there is a limit in height at 581 pixels. @shotcut ok that QT thing might work but when I type in the terminal : “shotcut --QT_SCALE_FACTOR 1”
it says: “bash: shotcut: command not founded”
Ok thank you it worked!!! after using “/snap/bin/shotcut --QT…1.” instead of only “shotcut --QT…1” since I downloaded shotcut also via snap. Now the window has the right size + I have the option again to minimize and maximize the window
Yes, but not with that option as far I could find. You can patiently use launch it like this until a version that upgrades Qt in the snap comes along in roughly a month. Unfortunately, this option must be applied before the app can be initialized enough to read its configuration file. So, that is why it is not available through settings. Technically, also, you can set an environment variable as well but then that ends up affecting all your Qt apps, which is usually not desirable.
