GUI Modification Help

Question

Heyo,

 

I'd like to make some (hopefully) easy and minor adjustments to my GUI however I am kind-of lost when it comes to managing the .json files.
When trying to manage these bars on my own, they move to the position I need them to be in but don't properly move when the user changes their resolution.

As for the zone title text I cant manage to get it to move outside of the player box in the top left, I'm guessing its constrained to the bounds.

I would also like to increase the font size on the zone text if possible.

If you'd be willing to help me out setting this up, please let me know what .json file I need to edit and which properties need to be changed.

I don't know for the zone title.

 

But for the bar,

It's "HotbarWindow" and what you want to change is the "Alignments" 

In my case i putted :  Center Bottom,

 

  "Bounds": "595,858,409,42",
  "Padding": "0,0,0,0",
  "AlignmentEdgeDistances": "0,4,4,0",
  "AlignmentTransform": "0,0",
  "Margin": "0,0,0,0",
  "RenderColor": "255,255,255,255",
  "Alignments": "Center,Bottom",
  "DrawBackground": true,
  "MinimumSize": "1,1",

 

You will have to put "Right,Bottom",

 

 

And for the other one it's "MenuContainer" i think

 

  "Bounds": "1307,854,289,42",
  "Padding": "0,0,0,0",
  "AlignmentEdgeDistances": "0,0,4,4",
  "AlignmentTransform": "0,0",
  "Margin": "0,0,0,0",
  "RenderColor": "255,255,255,255",
  "Alignments": "Right,Bottom",

 

For this one it must be "Right,Top" or something like that.

I REALLY appreciate this, I'll give it a try now and set your reply as the answer!
Edit: Worked, I had originally tried that and it didn't worked so I had thought maybe AlignmentTransform would be the solution. Turns out my VisualStudio crashed as I was saving the .json and I didn't notice.

Re-Opened to get my other question answered without making a new thread.
I'm not too sure how to get that zone title to move.

If I'd do that it would definitely not go into 6.2 as it would break existing GUI layouts.

 

Could I make a feature request on the github page? Or do you think I should just wait?
