Interface Font size?

Post by Joey » Mon Oct 26, 2009 10:51 am

Hi I'm new to TopStyle - in fact I'm new to Windows altogether. I've traditionally been a Mac developer/designer (interface designer) but as TopStyle is the only app I've come across that let's me design with a dedicated preview window, I'm giving Windows 7 a whirl. All that said I'm loving TopStyle so far except for one minor issue. The font used within the app's interface for the sidebars, tab names, clip library, etc. is incredibly tiny on my monitor.

Is there any way to change this? I'm guessing it's set between 9 to 10pt, and I'd like something closer to 12 or slightly better. It's hard to say for sure since font sizes seem to be a bit different from windows to Mac. Can this be edited within the registry or is it some system-wide setting I'm unaware of? For what it's worth my Appearance and Personalization > Display is already set to Medium but that seems to have no effect.

Thanks,

Joey

We're using Tahoma 8pt (regardless of what OS you're running)

Hi Stefan,

I suppose that your answer means that the interface 8pt font size can't be changed anywhere by the user? (Or anywhere in the config files?) I have the same problem with it being so tiny and I looked everywhere to find a way to change it, then came here to find the answer.

Could it be considered in a future revision, to add it into the user interface options (where it allows you to change the font size of the edit screen)?

(I really love this program, by the way. It's helping me immensely.)

Thanks for your response!

Most of the TopStyle UI will "follow" your Windows Display Settings. If you change your Widows Display Settings to large fonts, then most of the fonts in the TopStyle UI will display large.
