Command line font

Post by Scott Partridge » Wed Mar 10, 2004 4:10 pm

I think I already know the answer, but...

Is there a way to increase the font size on the MSCAD2004 command line? I'm running the program on a new Toshiba Portege M200 Tablet PC (way cool!) and all works well except that my old and tired eys are having problems reading the commandline. I've tried the usual Windows Xp system tricks about the DPI settings and icon font properties, etc.

I'm thinking that it is hard coded in, but if I recall correctly, you could change the commandline font in AutoCAD.

While I'm at it, it would be even more 'way cool' if MSCAD was Ink enabled a la Office 2003 products. As an example, if Field genius was ink enabled, you could annotate your FG drawing file by 'writing' on it with the stylus. Just an idea.

Hi:
Go to files pull down menu, down to configure, over to the colors tab, push the text button at the bottom and you can set the font size for the command line in 2004.

Don't know about the rest...

Vince has it nailed on the money.

The Ink enabling item - I have not seen this before (of course I have slightly older stuff than our advanced clients). The development team has explored this and if they can do something they will, in the future. :)

Thanks! Lordy, I can read the command line again!
