ACT Pro V18 Font Changes

[ Edited ]

How is the Font size changed in the Search and in the Lookup fields?

It is especially small in the search field which pops up after clicking the

"Help" menu . 

When choosing Search from the "Lookup Menu, the font size is too small

when typing the search word.  I a"m happy with the Windows default setting

so I hope it doesn't have to change to get a 10pt font size in the lookup and search fields

 

Thanks

Neal

Hi Neal,

The text size in the help files can be increased by increasing the zoom in Internet Explorer which displays these files. Zoom options can be found under the gear icon in the top right.
The text size in the lookup and search fields inside of Act cannot be increased, without changing the overall windows display DPI settings.

If I want to increase the font used in the fields, is there a way to do that as well?

 

I thought I saw that a while back, but not able to find the Q & A.

Hi John,

 

You can change field font size from within the layout designer.

That was simple.

 

It just seems to me that font size was at one time controlled by Internet Explorer font settings.  But regardless, this worked
