several icons in panel won't fit/are cut off

Postby bennypr0fane » 14 Jul 2019 15:27

Several of the icons in my Xfce panel are cut off on top/bottom:
Whisker menu SolydX icon, Linelight plugin icon (looking glass), and the bluetooth icon in notification area.

Unfortunately, I can't post screenshots here because image attachments are broken in this forum.
The panel height is set to 40 pixels. If I increase it, A) that doesn't change the icons' appearance and B) it eventually results in notification area having two lines. I can't find a way to adjust the panel icons' size (also, most of them are not cut off).
Right now I'm using the "Evolvere additional icons" icon set, but the cut-off ones look still the same if I choose the default "Evolvere Flat Vivid Sunken".

The size of items in the notification area can be adjusted.

Menu>Settings>Panel>Items>Notification Area

Click the Properties Icon towards the bottom of the list on the right.

You'll see a Max Height value that can be scrolled to adjust for better fit.

That sorta fixes the bluetooth icon, but it's larger than the other icons - meaning that if I downsize it, three of the other ones become too small (the Megasync icon is even larger than the bluetooth icon - but not cut off at the original max height of 21 pixels). I guess the problem is they're all different in size....
Hang on: If I *enlarge* everything, the bluettoth icon is complete! It's cut off only at max sizes of 21-23! :shock:

26 seems optimal for a panel size of 40.

That still leaves the SolydX main menu icon (!) and the linelight plugin icon though...

Thanks! With these values, I get a cut-off bluetooth icon. That's also true for the default icon theme. Maybe the bluetooth icon isn't part of either "Evolvere additional icons" nor "Evolvere Flat Vivid Sunken"?
I set it now to 38/24, works best for me.
What about the Menu icon though?

Linelight panel icon at panel height 38px.
It becomes complete if I raise the panel height to 58px. The plugin settings don't allow for adjusting icon size.
