Configuring Display Fonts
Use this dialog box to specify the display font and style in the Design Tool.
Changing the Design Tool's font has no effect on the font used by your printer, the status line, menu commands, or dialog boxes.
Specifies the display font in the Design Tool session window. You can use any font, including TrueType fonts. Arial is an example of a TrueType font that is not monospaced, and therefore is not supported by the Design Tool.
By default, the Design Tool uses the r_ansi font. This provides a 24 x 80 display that accurately emulates the terminal.
When you resize the Terminal window, the Design Tool chooses a new font size so the correct number of rows are displayed on the screen. If the Design Tool cannot display the font you have chosen, the default (r_ansi) is displayed instead.
The available fonts can change as you change the model ID in the Session Setup dialog box, because not all model IDs support all fonts.
When you print all or part of a host screen from a terminal session, the font used is the currently configured display font.
Specifies a font style, regular or bold. The Design Tool does not support italicized fonts. The default is Regular.
Display variable width fonts
Specifies whether proportionally-spaced font types appear in the Fonts box. The default is Yes.
Specifies that for whichever font or style you select, the Design Tool automatically adjusts the font size to fit all text in the Terminal window. To change the font size, set this setting to No. By default, Auto Font Size is enabled.
Fonts Installed by the Host Integrator
The following files are installed automatically by the Host Integrator installation program:
|Dialog.fon||The font used in the Design Tool's dialog boxes.|
|_ansi.ttf||The file for the TrueType versions of the r_ansi fonts.|
|R_ansi.fon||The file for the bitmap versions of the r_ansi fonts.|
|R_apl.ttf||The file for the TrueType versions of the r_apl fonts. You can't select this font from the Fonts tab—it's used to display characters in the Operator Information area (OIA) only.|
|R_contr.fon||You can't select this font from the Fonts tab—it's used to display control characters in VT and HP terminal emulation sessions.|
|R_contr.ttf||You can't select this font from the Fonts tab—it's used to display control characters in VT and HP terminal emulation sessions.|
|R_ibmasc.fon||The r_ibmasc font.|
|R_ibmhex.fon||You can't select this font from the Fonts tab—it's used only when you're in hexadecimal mode.|
|R_ibmsl.fon||The font used to display host symbols and status lines.|
|R_symbo_.fon||The file for the symbol fonts.|
|R_symbol_.ttf||The file for the TrueType versions of the symbol fonts.|
To use a monospaced (fixed-pitch) font other than Host Integrator's default display font, r_ansi, that font must already be installed under Windows. If the font you want to use doesn't appear in the Font box in the Display Setup dialog box, you need to install it using Windows Control Panel. Refer to your Windows documentation for information on installing new fonts.
