    Cataloging Editor Fields Cut Off

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Description:
    I just did a session letting people know how they could increase the font size in Aleph v.20.
    However, once our catalogers did so, now when they are in Edit Records in the Cataloging module, they can no longer see the whole field (see attached example).

    In the 245 field, they can only see one or two words of the title, even though there is a ton of white space to the right.
    The same problem occurs in the 035 field – they can see the letters OCoLC but not the actual OCLC number, unless they tab over it.

    Does anyone know how to fix the view in the Cataloging Editor fields in order to be able to continue to see the full title with the font slightly increased?

    Resolution:
    Font.ini > EditorFieldNew is related to Catalog > catalog.bin > [Editor] > FontSizeY.

    If you changed this setting to 18:
    EditorFieldNew 00000 0FFFF Arial Unicode MS N N N 18 DEFAULT_CHARSET

    Then FontSizeY, which controls horizontal line spacing in the Editor, needs to be increased to match it.

    In this case, FontSizeY must be equal to or greater than 18:
    FontSizeY=18
