How do I get to this dialog box?

From X Manager or X Manager for Domains or the X Administrative Console

  1. (Administrative Console only) Click the Domain Definitions tab.

  2. In the left pane, select an existing session definition or click next to Sessions Definitions to create a new one.

  3. In the Session Definition pane on the right, click the Fonts tab.

The options are:

Option Description
Server Font Path Displays the font collections that Reflection X searches when a client application requests a font. Font collections are searched in the order in which they appear in this list. Changing the list order so that commonly used fonts are at the top of the list and removing unused font collections improves search performance.
Note: A font collection is a set of font files or a reference to a font server. Font collections can be either private or public.
Font Collections Displays all of the available font collections.
Use font server on X client host If a client application requests a font that is not in the font collections specified under Server Font Path, Reflection X looks for a font server on the X client host on port 7100. If Reflection X finds a font server running, it passes the unresolved font request to that font server.
Allow font scaling If a client application requests a font in a size that is not available, Reflection X scales the closest matching font.
Allow font substitutions Substitutes fonts when client applications request fonts that are not available.
Permit client to set font path Allows the client to set the font path. Click Advanced to configure font path options. If deselected, X clients are silently prevented from changing the font path. No protocol error is generated if an X client attempts to change the path.
