Reduce the Internal Text editor font size. Possible?

Postby sdcinvan on Fri Feb 07, 2014 12:09 pm

Hello all,

Has anyone noticed how when word wrap is enabled, text still flows off the screen. To see this text, you must use a mouse drag action because word wrap mode disables the horizontal scroll bar. I think this is a bug! :(

Anyhow, got tired of word wrap because of that problem and that it also makes it more difficult to read the HTML.

With word wrap disabled, I thought, it would be great if the font size could be changed (just like any of my other tools). A smaller font would allow me to view more of my code.

Is this possible?

I'm pretty sure that the editor font size is the Windows default. Try changing that:
1) In the Control Panel, search for "Colors and Metrics". (There doesn't seem to be a link for it any more.)
2) Open, "Change Window Colors and Metrics"
3) Have a blast.

Thanks for the response. I wouldn't want to globally change my font size. Anyhow, this is not supported by Flare but perhaps in a future version.

I wish the reply would please be updated.
I'm a half-hour into making simple conditional text changes because the easiest way seems to be copying code from correctly formatted text and applying the same descriptors to my new text - however, trying to select just the tag causes the window to shift violently, and I lose my text (yes, I place the cursor and dra-aa-ag to the end of the required text - if possible).
Chasing code across the screen is irritating, looks ludicrous to colleagues watching me, and turns what I could've done in Word in twenty seconds (inserting new pub numbers onto the cover of an updated doc) into what is rapidly becoming over an hour-long ordeal.
Please, if there's been an advance in the ability to wrap on-screen code while editing, kindly share the process :-)
