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).
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
The font in Places panel is changed. The font in the file viewing area is not changed.
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.
