Can someone let me know how to change the font type and size for the code edit windows.
Right-Click on the toolbar, and select Customize.
A "Customize" window pops up with 3 tabs. Select the "Toolbars" tab, and check the "Formatting" option.
This will enable the Formatting Toolbar and allow Font changes etc.
Ok, even with the formatting toolbar visible, it is disabled.
Under Tools/Options there is a font selection for Program/Debug but strangley no font setting under Text Editor.
What would be nice is to be able to ctrl/wheel zoom in/out same as VS and other IDE's.
At this time I find the current font size too small to be confortable.
Just a thought.
This is just to bump to the top as there was reply from Cypress regarding this.
At this time there is no easy way to update font settings in the Code Editor.
The Code Editor plugin comes from a third party. There have been many requests to update it, and we have been investigating various options.
I do not know what the timeline is to address these issues, but I do know that Marketing has been pushing hard to get this updated.
The ActiproSoftware.SyntaxEditor.Net20 control does have a drop down font selector.
I do not know if this can be exposed in your GUI but you could inherit from it I would think.
I am not sure why changing the font is so difficult.
I have tested the third party control that you use and the following code brings up a font dialog and allows the font to be changed;
My apologies. I did not mean it would be difficult to implement. I just meant that as the system is now, there is no exposed user interface to do this.
Now you really have me scratching my head.
On the main IDE toolbar strip there is a toolbar called formatting which at this time is grayed out when displayed.
Since this toolbar is "exposed" what is it for?
That toolbar is used for the Schematic and Symbol Editors. The text formatting options on that toolbar are for text labels.
