Will dropdown font sizes ever be fixed?

I know others have already reported this, but the font size in dropdown choices does not always match the size of the selected choice when using the app in a browser. Does Microsoft plan to fix this issue anytime soon?  People have been reporting this for over a year now.  For SharePoint list choice columns, the font size of the choices in the dropdown is much smaller than the selected choice.  For manually-created dropdowns, the font size of the choices is much larger than the selected choice.

 

There does appear to have been some progress.  The funny thing is that a manually-created dropdown works correctly in Chrome but not in IE 11, while a SharePoint list dropdown now seems to work correctly in IE 11 but not in Chrome.

Re: Will dropdown font sizes ever be fixed?

I've noticed a problem in which the font size dropdown in the Home tab in the ribbon doesn't work in the dropdown controls that are used for SharePoint lists (i.e., the Lookup control). I've also tried this scenario in both browsers, and I'm seeing the issue in which the fonts in Internet Explorer are a lot bigger than they should be. I'll contact the owners of those controls to get them fixed.

 

@scotthanks you mentioned that some of it works in IE, while others work in Chrome; I've found out that in Chrome it seems to work fairly well (see details below). Can you post some screen capture of what doesn't work in Chrome for you?

 

To test that I've built an app that uses both dropdowns from sharepoint lists (Lookup controls, inside forms), and from "regular" dropdown controls. I've set the font of one of them to a small value, and the other to a large value:

And here's what I see when I expand all dropdowns in Chrome - it looks correct to me (again, please post a screenshot if you see differently):

In IE, however, I see the font size in the dropdown being a lot larger. This is a bug, and as I mentioned I'll report it to the owner of that control:

Re: Will dropdown font sizes ever be fixed?

Thank you, @CarlosFigueira.  For some reason, I'm no longer able to reproduce the issue in Chrome.  I'm not sure why.  There must have been some other contributing factor like the version of Chrome I was using at the time or something.  Whatever it was, I'm glad it's working now.

 

By the way, as you may have noticed, the issue is much more noticeable in IE the smaller the browser window is when you start the app.  I didn't even notice it at first because I typically run the browser full screen on a large monitor.  So it seems that the dropdown control isn't adjusting the text size of the dropdown choices for the browser window size like it does for the selected choice.

@CarlosFigueira

I noticed I have the same issue.  I'm using IE 11.2312 on Windows 10 as part of a corporate image.  I don't have an issue when using Edge or Chrome.   Is IE 11 not a supported browser?

Hi CarlosFigueira


Would you have an update on when this bug might be fixed?

It certainly still exists for me when using IE... I saw this was logged as an idea here, but if this is a bug then it should be fast tracked. The screen just looks ridiculous like this with no way of fixing it..

Re: Will dropdown font sizes ever be fixed?

Hi, @CarlosFigueira this thread is two years old and I'm still experiencing the same bug: fonts in IE 11 are way too big but work correctly in Chrome.

 

The organisation I am developing for is still on IE 11 so I don't have the option of using Chrome. Is there somewhere I can track progress on currently known bugs?


Thanks!

Internet Explorer is dead and very old, at least tell them to switch to Edge, it is still a standard tool from Windows, but at least is still supported.
