 Already in v5.0.0


Adjust the relative size of names in the Map View.

This option is chiefly useful for adornments, but can be useful to those wishing to tweak the look of their layout or allow for high-resolution screens and poor eyesight.

The base size of map items, at nominal magnification, continues to be set in Preferences, Maps, Note label size. This is indirectly inherits from Preferences. The attribute is a percentage of magnification applied to that note's Name caption text. Thus, if a note's $MapTextSize is 200, it will be twice as large as normally-sized items.

From v5.9.2 this cane be set from the Inspector's $Name pane.
