Dolphin vertical icon text spacing

Sun Oct 13, 2019 9:37 pm
Recently installed Kubuntu 19.10 (KDE 5.16.5/Dolphin 19.04.3). Dolphin seems to be giving extra vertical space to icons now (as opposed to my previous install of 18.04 (KDE 5.12.9/Dolphin 17.12.3). This looks very clunky. Here is a shot of Dolphin vs Konqueror, which displays the icons without added space. I have the Music folder selected in each window and you can see how Dolphin selects three additional empty lines in the icon name pushing the next row of icons down.

I can't seem to find any way to adjust the vertical spacing. Is it possible to fix this? Is this a bug?

Maybe you can change it in Settings -> View Modes -> tab Icons -> check box Maximum lines ...

Thanks for the suggestion, but that setting has no effect on this bug. It does change the number is text lines shown in folder names, but the extra space is still there no matter what the setting.

Please check, if changing of Width make a difference. I think vertical space is dynamicaly calculated from longest file or folder name, divided (or not) in several lines depend on the horizontal space according to Width.

Yes, I tried that also. I've changed fonts, icons, icon size, maximum lines and width but whenever I am in Icon View I get this extra vertical space.

OK, I figured this out. Under View>Adjust View Properties>Additional Information, the width and height boxes were checked. Apparently this reserves space to display those parameters even if they are not present for a folder or file type.

Those parameters apply probably only for image files ...
