Increase text size on "main" screen?

Recommended Posts

My new laptop has a much higher resolution than my old one. As a result, the size of the text on the "main" screen (Explorer, Details, Flags, Children, Siblings, and Image) is very small, as is the text when I'm entering a new tag. Well, actually, everything is very small, which is tough on my eyes. I have used various methods to increase text size in general, including reducing the resolution, using an app that applies 8.1 DPI scaling, etc. These fixes work in other programs, but so far I haven't been able to do much with TMG. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks...

I use a high resolution screen (2560x1440) and have adjusted the TMG font size on the Program Options - Lists, Project Explorer and Other tabs so that all screens in my layout have satisfactory font sizes.

 

The default text on many lower level screens uses the default text size but I don't find that to be a problem. All data fields have the larger text size.

Your reply was very helpful. It hadn't occurred to me to looks at the items you've listed above. Apparently the data input for "Tag Entry" (other than for Memo) uses the default text, as I haven't found anything to increase the size of that data. It's very small, IMO.

What size display do you use for your high-rez screen?

Thanks very much for your help!

How do you change the windows size for just TMG? I've never done something like that.

The same way that you resize any window. I use a utility that can resize a window to a selected size.

 

After you set the window size, then you need to adjust a custom layout to fit all of the workspace windows appropriately.

 

You can always change window sizes by dragging the edges or corners. The tool lets you set an exact size for a window. I use this on multiple application windows so that they all have the same size on my desktop.

 

I'll send you the tool that I use if you email me.

I'll send an email. I've resized individual windows by "dragging," but this sounds somewhat different. Thanks!

Hi Judy,

 

For more (gory) details about Font sizes you might look in the "Style" chapter of my on-line book about configuring TMG and review the Fonts topic. However as my notes in that section mention, it does seem that some aspects of the "Tag Entry" do appear to use the default Windows font size.

 

Hope this gives you ideas,

Would like to change font size in PERSON VIEW. Cannot find where to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just bought a new high res laptop and TMG is not clear now.

See the second post in this topic. The Tag Box is a list.

TMG was developed long before high resolution displays were available so has limited settings to deal with such issues.
