Description Kjetil Kilhavn 2013-12-24 09:33:59 UTC
When I change the font size in System Settings (Application Appearance → Fonts) and press Apply the change takes effect in Dolphin’s panel (Places), but not in the file viewing area. I have to restart Dolphin for the change to take effect.

I have not found any existing reports for this, but it seems related to e.g. 256856 and 323917 (315061).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Dolphin
2. Open System Settings and go to Application Appearance → Fonts
3. Change the font size(s) and press Apply
Actual Results:  
The font in Places panel is changed. The font in the file viewing area is not changed.

Expected Results:  
The font is changed both in the Places panel and in the file viewing area.

The change is (as expected) picked up if I close and restart Dolphin, so this is not a large problem - hence I use Minor as severity.

Thanks for the bug report. I can confirm this problem. It's not an Icons View issue though - it applies to all view modes.

Please always prepend bug numbers with the word "bug" (like bug 315061). Bugzilla then generates a link which can be clicked.
