New Viewer?

What is the significance of the two font sizes in the new viewer "Table of Contents"?

There's only one font size. Bold entries indicate the current chapter/section you are on in the viewer to the right.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit, and I am displaying two font sizes on a dark gray background. A small normal font and a larger bold font.

A typical display would look like this:
TOC entry 1 and 2 - large bold
TOC entry 3,4 and 5 - small normal.
TOC entry 6,7 and 8 - large bold
TOC entry 9 and 10 - small normal.

This started with calibre-0.8.54 and continues with 8.55. This doesn't happen with all files.

I am sending two files that display this behavior. One I downloaded from Feedbook and the other a file I use for testing.

Your TOC window is wide enough for everything to fit. If you decrease the window width you will see the behavior I described.

The problem has to do with the line length. If you drag the TOC window to make all lines fit, all is normal. If you make the window just wide enough for a given line and then select it, the smaller font will appear.

Earlier versions of the viewer truncated the line if it was to long to fit. This new method makes me grab a magnifying glass to to read it.

P.S. It would be nice to have the option to do away with the dark gray background. Old eyes lose the ability to discern contrast.

That looks like you're on XP, not windows 7. Go to preferences->Look & Feel and change the User Interface style to "Calibre style".

Running Windows 7 with the "classic" theme.

I made the change you suggested but to no avail.

I am running Windows 7 (I swear on my granny's grave) with a "classic" theme.

I just tried switching my Win 7 Pro to Classic. And the Chapter titles on your Tarzan book get truncated, in System Default and Calibre styles.

Ah, try changing your theme to the default theme temporarily and see if it makes a difference.

Changed the theme and the "look and feel" back to default. and it worked as expected.

Odd thing. When using the default theme I lost the ability to resize the TOC window by itself.

Back to classic theme and the problem returns.

Hmm, I have no idea why your classic theme behaves differently or how to get it to not do that.
