    I have a problem with SCALE_V in resource of VideoPost, here is example code

    CONTAINER vpmyvideopost
    {
        NAME vpmyvideopost;
        INCLUDE VPbase;
      
        GROUP ID_VIDEOPOSTPROPERTIES
        {
            DEFAULT 1;
            SCALE_V;
            STRING MY_SCALED_EDIT { CUSTOMGUI MULTISTRING; SCALE_V; }
        }
    }
    

    Desired effect is to have MY_SCALE_EDIT scaled vertically across whole window in Render Settings, but I get only default height.
    Because the same method works in drendersettings.res (for RDATA_HELPTEXT), I guess it is because render settings uses CustomDescriptionGui to show VP settings and this element doesn't have SCALE_V set. If so, is there some way to set it from within VP plugin?

    Note that in my real code, I don't use MULTISTRING but my own iCustomGui, so if there is a way to get the height of parent dialog (the second column in render settings), it would also be solution as I could simply compute correct height and set it in main group.

    Hi,

    I'm afraid this looks like a limitation of the Render Settings dialog setup.
    The same parameter definition for an Object plugin works as expected in the Attribute Manager i.e. the edit text scales vertically as expected.
