We have an i-series here where I work and I was wanting to use some

a shortcut on the desktop, but I can't seem to get it to scale the way
the IBM Windows clients will. If I expand the window, the text remains
at the same size it was when the terminal was launched.

How do I get the text to scale up with the size of the terminal

If you are doing this on Windows then Scott will have to answer whether
or not the windows version supports scaling text. As for
xt5250/tn5250/x5250 on linux/BSD/whatever it does not support scaling
the text to match an arbitrary window size. I'm working on this for
x5250, albeit very slowly.

What you can do is specify font sizes instead of window sizes. A larger
font will give a larger window. This works in xt5250 and x5250.

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)

Thanks... Can you advise how to do that? I'd *like* for it to be readable
at 800x600 desktop size at the very least. If I take the desktop down to
640x480, it's very readable, but then everything else is huge.
