Design Software Font and Font / Icon Size issues

Q: Design Software Font and Font / Icon Size issues

Hi, I've the IdeaCentre AIO 700 24-ish and as I have seen and read all over the net, there are issues with tiny fonts, etc on some programs, apps, etc. I have seen many issues relating to that and have the problem myself. I have Gimp, Inkspace and a couple other open design programs ( no need to bash them ) on it now to test out - and the fonts and icons are so tiny I cannot see what I am doing. Same with Avira and a couple other programs and apps. Can read it if I use a magnifying glass. I have done all the right adjustments, etc and it never changes. I know the desktop is not designed for a designer/artist, per say, but I am and have this one.I've both read and been told it's an issue with the software and app creators/developers not being on the same page and unless and until they are, the tiny fonts and icons on some things just have to remain. The icons on Gimp for my tools of about 20, could all fit on a square the size of a sugar cube. My question is, is that, in fact, an issue with no resolve ...or not? I am about to begin a home design business and would like to perhaps get Adobe Illustrator, but to spend the money and have tiny fonts and icons would be a crapfest for me. I bought the desktop a year ago having been told it was superior for design programs from Best Buy and investigations showed nothing otherwise and just actually relocated and am using it finally....and I find myself in Micro Icon Park in the middle of Tinyfontville.What can I do, if anything? Seems that there is no changing abilities for these and I don't want to throw even more money away with Illustrator. Thank you in advance for any kind help!Kevin

This was excellent with the RC version of win 7, I mean, it installed it all on its own, it was like it read my mind and knew that I was getting old and I was going to be happy with the font size.

Well, it all changed with the RYN version, I manually had to use the 125% dpi option, which worked well with the icon sizes but not so much with the font size withing the content window.

The size is awesome on this site but not so much on others and/or the software I use... see example.

I have also gone to the "Change Window Colors and Metrics" and sorted some other stuff but, I can't for the life of me, change the "Window Text" inside the "Active Window"... again, see image attached.

My problem is that at my 46 yrs of age, my eyesight is not that bad, hence the problem I am having. I mean, I can see 20/20 for most everything but, fine print within 1 is when all hell breaks loose and my computer is within 1 & 2 so its a toss up

Anyways, what else I can do?

A:Changing font size... not the icon

If changing the Display resolution isn't working (Control Panel - Appearance and Personalization - Display - Screen Resolution "Make text and other items larger or smaller") isn't doing it, Windows IE 8 has a tab in the lower right corner to jack up the resolution in the browser. For sites that have small text on parts of them, you can jump the resolution from 125% to 150, or better.

Here's another suggestion from Dwarf, in an earlier thread:

"Try this. Click Tools and Internet Options. On the General tab, under Appearance, click Accessibility. In the Formatting section, click to check (place a tick) the option Ignore font sizes specified on webpages and then click OK twice."

The text font in the Chrome tabs along the top of the screen is too hard to read - as is the address bar and icons. I've set my graphics dpi to a setting which is fine for all other apps and don't want to change it. The Chrome default text size has no effect, Google has not acted on feedback and I can't find a solution by Googling the issue.

Is there a way of increasing the size of the tab text and icons? I'm surprised how poor the Chrome UI is given the cash Google has for development.

As someone with bad eyesight, I sometimes find it easier to go into the Personalize menus in previous Windows versions, and change the "icon" font size to 12/13 and make it bold, from the default which I believe is 8. However as I'm sure many know by now Win8 has removed such options. Is there any way I can fix this?

I have connected my laptop to a 40" LCD TV using HDMI cable and everything works fine. Since the desktop icons/fonts on the TV shows default (small) size from the laptop, in order for me to see it from the distance I have to change the desktop icons/fonts to a larger size.

Here is my question; Is there a way to set up a different desktop icon/fonts size to match the TV and the laptop? (perhaps different profile settings???) Meaning, when I disconnect the HDMI cable from the TV, I want the size of the icons/fonts go back to default/small size icons and vice versa .

Hope this question makes sense.

I can't think of anything that exist within windows. It wasn't necessarily designed to be used on 40" LCD from 10' away in the way you are using it. That's why Windows Media Center's fonts are so much bigger.

Per this Topic here on 7F: dual monitor text is different sizes between screens you're out of luck.

Good day.

I wish to know if there is a way to change the font size/style (bold, etc.) of the icon labels ONLY on the desktop screen.

I've tried the Control Panel method (Appearance & Personalization -> Display) that allows me to change the fonts for 'ICONS'. However, this option also changes the appearance of fonts in the directories/filenames, which is not what I want.

E.g. Labels on the desktop with size 12 and bold. Fonts in folders: size 9 and UNbolded (default style).

Anyone have a solution for this?

I want to be able to adjust the desktop icons' spacing (vertical and horizontal), desktop icons font size, etc. In Windows 7 this was achieved by going to Personalization/Wndow Color/Advanced Appearance Settings and then you'd have a drop down menu with many items to be able to adjust.

Hi,

Recently my Benq 22" LCD went in for repair under warranty (broken back light was the problem, I am told). My dear old Mum lent me a spare monitor she had lying around so that I would not suffer terribly from internet withdrawal. When I got my monitor back, I noticed one or two issues in relation to font size:

The first was that on certain websites (the news one I have internet explorer defaulted to, as well as ' Yahoo' mail), certain text is 'overlaid' or 'superimposed' on other text. In other words on some parts of these sites one hyperlink sits 'on top of ' another, as if I have the font size set too big and so therefore there is not enough room on the page for all the hyperlinks to be displayed as they should be (in the ' page' menu, I have text size set to 'smaller' i.e the second smallest of the five available options). I also have 'zoom' set to 100%, if that is relevant). The second thing bugging me is that when I go to retrieve my email from ' Yahoo', the subject headings are way too big.

I tried googling a few fixes, and tried variously:

- setting the font size to 96 DPI

- going to Tools menu>internet options>accessibility, and checking/unchecking combinations of the three ' formatting'
options. Presently I have the first two options (' ignore colors specified on webpages', and ' ignore font styles specified on
webpages') unchecked, and t... Read more

Hi there everyone. I have a problem with my computer's formatting. For

example, my mouse's cursor size is extremely small and I have a deer that

occasionally makes it's way under my cursor. (From right to left) How do I get

rid of that?

The other problem (and more pressing!) Is that for some reason my font on Internet Explorer has become extremly small! The font is now around 8 pt or smaller!

What do I need to do to fix these problems?

Thanks!

A:Computer font and mouse size issues

You might want to try to see if there is some cursor software installed on your computer. To do that, you would go to the control panel, and then programs and features and see if a cursor software program is installed. You would want to uninstall that to get back to your normal cursor state. As far as being small, this could be the resolution. To change this go to:
1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.

2.Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.

If you change your resolution numbers to smaller numbers the screen will get larger, and if you change the resolution to larger numbers the screen gets smaller looking.

If this does not fix your Internet explorer text being small issue, open internet explorer and on your keyboard press ctrl and 0 (zero) at the same time and this should refresh the text to the default size in internet explorer. Hope this has helped

Windows XP home SP2.

Several months ago I experienced an unusual problem with my computer in that all fonts had been changed to Marlett, a font that is non-readable, and all other fonts had been removed. I spent a lot of time making corrections to Windows settings and found some info on these boards but was not able to find a permanent solution.

One of the recommendations was to import fonts to the Windows Font folder, which I did via a thumb drive. This helps, and gives me fonts, but not permanently. In fact, after import the fonts show in the folder only until I close it, and if re-opened there is nothing to see, and the folder locks up requiring a task manager close. Every time it is necessary to shut down the computer the font resets to Marlett, so I have to re-import the fonts.

Recently, I began to run in to memory problems, with Windows repeatedly advising I was running dangerously low on memory. I spent a lot of time deleting non-essential files and moving others to an alternate drive, but memory usage continued to be a problem. I finally spent time finding where the memory was being used and, in looking at the fonts folder from the "my computer" area, found that the supposedly empty fonts folder has 3.9 gigs of material in it. However, when I open the fonts folder, it shows an empty folder.

I tried going through the "First Steps" series but was unable to due to memory shortage. I am at a complete loss on what to do now short... Read more

Hello, XP Pro general question. For a couple years I've had ComicSans as my chosen Font style. Not in any particular program...but rather every window, file & folder title possible(on this particular "Limited" User Screen). Problem: for some unknown reason, this font setting/choice recently reverted back to XP Pro's default font(Ariel?). I've looked high & low & can't recall how I originally accessed this setting. Microsoft's HELP say's "To change the font : 1. On the Options menu, click Font. 2. In the Font dialoge box, click the options you want." I guess I have to live with the frustration of "NO RESULTS FOUND" in Micrsoft's Help database when queried for "Options menu" or "Font dialoge box". But since their HELP "doesn't", I was hoping someone here could specifically-exactly direct me to this setting's location. The only "Options" I have under "Tools" is "Folder Options" which gives me no Font options. The ComicSans font I want reinstated, still exists in the "Font" folder in my Control Panel.

Nothing. I really want everything put back to normal. How do I reset the fonts back to the standard XP size and style?
Or if possible, just to reduce the system font size.

Hi, I had larger font on icons and wording until I installed Adobe 9.1 The icons remain large but the text has reverted to small. I have checked the setting and it is set to the larger font. I then removed Adobe 9.1 I changed it to small, logged off and on again and both icons and text small. I changed it back to large, logged off and on again and the icons are now larger but the text is still small. Help.

When i move cursor with Touchpad the font changes size all browsers have to keep using cntrl + & - to adjust.---Any fix?
 

A:FONT CHANGES SIZE

Mine has shown a bit of a distressing tendency to do that since they added the new touchpad features they're quite proud of, to emulate some of the features of a touch screen. Check your touchpad settings. I don't know how your device is set up, but mine's under Synaptics>Properties>Device Settings> on the Settings button. There may be something you can change or untick under there. There was mention of it in the introductory app, which I seem to have temporarily misplaced, possibly because I can't remember what it was called...

Failing that, report it through the Feedback App.

Edited to add: I do suspect it has to do with the pinch/spread fingers feature to enlarge or shrink picture/text/etc. I'm trying to be more conscious of how I move my fingers on there. If you un-tick some of those features, it may solve the problem.

Welcome to TSG!!
I found the following information here.


How do I change fonts?
You can change the type and size of the font used for the messages in chat. You'll find these settings under the "Preferences" button above the chat message line.
Click "Preferences," choose the font and size from the two menus, and then click "Save."

Note: The recommended font size for normal vision is between 10 and 14. Click to expand...

For some strange reason my font size when I access many sights is huge. It's no problem when I'm offline(or on this sight) I also have some Zwax bug found by Spybot(I just can't figure out how to get rid of it). I can usually solve any problem alone or just by reading all you guys answers to others problems. This is just frustrating me to no end.

Hi, darrinlane, and welcome back!

Let's start at the beginning and work our way forward. Follow the instructions below. In the meantime, I will move your thread to HJT Help, so the Analysts will find it faster.

Please download Ad-aware SE and install it if you don't have it already. Make sure it's the newest version and check for any updates before running it. Also go here to get the plug-in for fixing VX2 variants. To run this tool, go into Ad-aware->Add-ons and select VX2 Cleaner. Then click Run Tool and OK to start it. If it's clean, it will say Status System Clean. Otherwise, you will have to click on the Clean button to remove the VX2 infection. Also make sure to customize the settings in Ad-aware for better scan results. Run the scan and fix everything that it finds.

Download CWShredder and run it. Click on 'I Agree' button if you agree with it. Click on 'Fix' (it will automatically fix anything it finds for you) and OK. If it asks if you want to delete a certain random file, choose No and post that filename here. Let it finish the scan and then hit Next and Exit.

Please download HijackThis http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/HijackThis.exe - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro scre... Read more

I would like to increase the font size on my W7. On everything. I don't want to go here an there to accomplish this but to just change the default font style and its size. My eyesight is getting worse as I get older. The picture you see was taken in 1974 when I was 44.

Assuming you are talking about the web browser interface as compared to POP3 access ...

On your Yahoo mail page click on Options -> Mail. On the General Preferences page there should be "Messages" section where you can choose a normal, smaller or larger font size for displaying plain text messages. I do not believe there are any font size options for formatted messages.
