How can I permanently adjust the size of windows and fonts?
The size of windows and fonts can be permanently and individually adjusted for each client.
If you want these settings for all PCs, simply change them at one PC and use the function Version Check to update the other clients. The changes will be effective after restarting the client.
- To change the size of a window drag the window to the desired size using the mouse. After that click on the title bar of the window with the right mouse button (for windows without a system- menue) resp. with the left mouse button (for windows which have a system menue) and select the line “Visual Properties” from the menue which has opened. A window with the properties opens showing the new size in a field "Current Size". The size can be saved with the button "Locate". If there is no field "Current Size", then the size of the window cannot be adjusted.
Before saving the changes make sure that the checkbox "Resize" is activated. If the checkbox is empty, please activate it, click on "Locate", close the module and start it again.
For further informationen please read the Online Manual, chapter "General" , section 7 "Visual properties of windows".
The settings are saved in the .ini file in the directory \Tab of the module, e.g. ..\Sear\Tab\Sear.ini, in the section [WindowLocation]:
To distribute these settings to other PCs using the Version Check function, the file must be copied with its complete path to the directory ..\Version of your Alephino server installation, e.g. ..\Version\Sear\Tab\Sear.ini
