What is the DPI of your monitor?
For you every block looks bigger than necessary!

Thank you for your reply.

The attached image uses a font size of 96 ppp, but this size is not easy to read !

it doesn’t seem to have very much to do with the change to the field on the status bar. the width of the field didn't change that much... most of the needed space for the new information i took from the already present text making it shorter. the effect shown in your screen shot is not the image i see on my machine. why are all of the fields so long on your machine? there is something else wrong here...

Thank you.

I use 'svn11112'.

Could you make a picture showing all of your status bar?

Your monitor width is about 1900 pixels, is 460 pixels more than my monitor : which is why you have a large space for file paths.

i am aware of that. but i do think that the fields on your machine are wider than on mine... could be mistaken though  ::)
