comparison thunar 1.6x  - thunar 1.8.x

It's a regression. Here a direct comparison between 1.6.x and 1.8.x

Changing the value of this line:

from 6 to 5 yields good results to me, 4 is a bit too much.
Notice that that value was set long ago (2012), probably gtk3 likes to make things higher and wider.

@alexxcons please confirm that tweaking that value works for you, so I (or you) can push this fix.

Confirmed, it works !
However for "Icon Size = Very Small" , a value of "1" is best to look like thunar 1.6 ... 5 does not help much for that size.

For  "Icon Size = Normal" it seems not to matter if 1 or 4 is selected.
Yes, 5 looks a bit better for normal size I have to admit ... but I would prefer to have a usable "Very Small" for people with many network shortcuts, than a slightly better-looking "Normal". What do you think ?
Comment 4 Andre Miranda editbugs 2018-06-20 04:46:06 CEST
I see, from 5 to 4 makes a huge difference for "Very small" icon size, who would have predicted that...
4 is acceptable to me, both "Very small" and "Smaller" icon size won't be much different from 1.6.x.
