Page cannot be scrolled

Post by Konrad Klar » Sat Oct 05, 2019 9:12 am

https://cardnum.net/cards

cannot be scrolled.
And this may be a problem for users of devices with screen of low resolution. Sometimes text of selected card is not fully visible and cannot be selected (in order to copy it to clipboard).

Try a couple of work arounds.

1. You can tap a card and the card text will show up in a box on the left.
2. On a PC, try ctrl -/+(=) to zoom in and zoom out

One question, do you mean, just can't be scrolled with the scroll wheel on your mouse?

If that is the case try a different browser, I will also have to check my scroll wheel mouse hook up and see.

Thanks

There is no scrollbar even if content of page does not fit in the window (vertically), so wheel (without qualifiers) has no effect.
Tried with Chrome and Opera (the two are installed on my backup laptop).

Thanks for workarounds.

EDIT:
"not fit the window" > "not fit in the window|

Weird. Scrolling is working for me on Chrome and Firefox (on Windows though). If this is your backup laptop, are the browsers current?

What are the specs of the computer? If it's slow, it could just take a while to load everything. During the loading, the cards do not appear (or they appear as blank boxes) and you cannot scroll.

My old cheap laptop could not load Cardnum well and it would take minutes to load when it worked. Even on a fast computer with a fast convention it will take several seconds, during which I cannot scroll. My phone will load it slowly, but it works.

The part containing text of card cannot be scrolled. The part containing pictures can be scrolled.

Ah I see. As a workaround (Windows + Chrome), just (1) search for the card that you want and (2) click your mouse to highlight the card text and drag down to the bottom of the screen (into the windows bar). This will highlight the card image in the next frame over as well as the text. When you paste, the card text and the name of the card image will be pasted. But since it's just one card you can easily delete the extra text.

Instead of (2) above, you can also click and drag the mouse over the card images.

Tried on a different machine which has tiny default text and ran into the same problem in the deckbuilder: by the time I had increased the browser zoom so that the text was a normal size the bottom of the deckbuilder was off the screen.

That's related to the deck notes. I ran rough shot and just did the notes too quick.

Took for ever to get the deck layout working properly with the 6 boxes and menus above, where there were no zoom issues, at STANDARD sizes. But there was a lot of demand for notes, and after about 6 months of requests, like I said I just willy nilly added the "notes" section to get um done.

Be careful zooming the deck builder, unless you got stuff saved, or zoom from the beginning...
