Scale font in thread list


Scale the font in the thread list for the subject line (up by default, down to fit long subject lines). I'm viewing this at 1900x1200 and there is a lot of "whitespace" on that thread list.

Hmmm... I'm not so sure I like this idea. Won't scaling up and down based on the length of the text cause an irregular looking UI? Some of the lines will have a huge font, and others will have a normal size font.

I think if you take some larger than average subject length as a base, scale the font based on the current size of the whitespace for this base length, and then scale down only for subject lines that exceed the base, it'll work out well. The trick is to choose a base value where 95% of subject lines are not scaled down.

Okay... here's what I did. I simply increased the font. I found that there was alot of white space on my page as well, so I multiplied the font size by approximately 1.5 times, to make wrapping occur in a maximum of two lines... after that, character clipping.
