RE: Increase font size for PC5250?



fixed

For what it's worth, I like Inconsolata:
http://levien.com/type/myfonts/inconsolata.html

It's scalable, so I have selected "Automatic sizing" and "Keep window
size" and I use the "medium" version of the font, not the bold, which
doesn't seem to have the window drawing characters.

The font designer says that it's really for print, rather than on-screen,
but I like the way it looks on screen, and use it for everything that
calls for a monospace font.

Just my opinion, but I would go crazy using that font. Ugly. Perhaps you
want to make note of what the font was before changing just in case she
doesn't like it.

I depends on what she wants... I imagine she wants to maximize the 5250
session, and not have all the black space at the edges...

So, make sure the window is NOT MAXIMIZED, then from the

Menu > Edit > Preferences > Appearance > Font Select the font named "PComm
Session"
Save the .ws config.

Now, regardless of the screen size, the text will scale to fit without
borders...

I've had a user ask for a larger font for her PC5250 sessions. Does
anyone know if that's even possible?

Thanks
