FONT SIZE PROGRAM SCREEN ONLY
« on: October 27, 2012, 11:09:08 AM »


 Hi I am new here hope someone can help .  Btw I did a few searches  and found a bunch of font size topics. Spent hours trying to figure it out still have no luck from what I see  ( It is not a  windows issue nor a screen resolution) , it must be in mach3 program setting or  pos patch set up files because its only the  font size in the program screen that i need to change smaller to fit the screen.

 For some reason the Font is larger in that screen  only exceeding the window. In the  Mach3 program under con fig fonts ( all fonts  default to 18 ) i tried to change code font  to smaller font  but it does not let you save a new font size???

 I have a TAIG  micro mill 2000LE  with the original controller box  I was sent these  files with instructions .
 Mach3mill.xml and MPS1024E.set into the main Mach 3 folder on the hard drive of your computer.  When prompted replace the existing Mach3mill.xml.  Next copy the file BackgroundToolpath3.jpg into the Mach 3 sub-directory Mach3\Bitmaps\Millbitmaps. 

 Every thing seems to be working find except the font size in the Program  screen ONLY.Any ideas what to try next or how to fix font size in  the program screen?

 TIA

That is a custom screenset so likely the issue is with it. If it is button and label fonts then the buttons/labels are not big enough for the text.
If you can attach a screenshot of what you see then the problem could possibly  be verified.

You can only change the font itself, not the size.

Are you taking about the size of the g-code? If so, the only way to change that font size is to open the screenset in a screen editor and increase the number of visible lines in the g-code window, which will have the affect of reducing the font size.

Download and install Screen 4 http://www.machsupport.com/downloads/Screen4.zip
Start it, and go to the Defaults menu, and pick your Mach3 installation folder.
Open the .set file you're using, choosing 1024x768 size.
When the screen opens, right click on the toolpath window.
A properties window should open. At the bottom left, is the # of lines. Increase the number of files, click OK, and save the sceenset.

That should do it.
