Default Anyone else see that property? ShrinkFontToFit

So uh.... was making some updates to my UI this evening. Saw some funky stuff going when resizing Journal window.

Discovered the Mission tab had these properties on Text elements:

ShrinkFontToFit="true"

Seriously? Is this new?
Kinda cool, but it works terribly. It shrinks the text in the entire UI. However, this could be super useful if used in a settings page or something perhaps. Didn't have the time to experiment.

I quickly tried it in a normal text field without luck, so not sure if it's limited to table text elements or what.

AFAIK they added it with the mission timers tab.

It's buggy as heck. Shrinks the entire font (everywhere its used) when it shrinks it in the missing timer window.

Not too surprised about it being buggy. Noticed it on an article on eq2wire looking back this month. Oh well.

Hah, yeah. At first it seemed like a really good idea... except for the part where it broke all the things.

That and shrinking "Short Zone" to the same percent as "Really Long Zone: With Suffix of Longness [Longest]" was /boggle. I can see how it's kind of a quick and cheap fix (figure out the longest thing, resize the entire font accordingly) but with a kludge like that it's almost not worth bothering.
