Hi: Second try, more platform information. I am running Frame on a Solaris system on a GNOME desktop. The GNOME desktop preferences fonts do not affect the font of anything in Frame - not the menus, not the default text size in the window, not the size of the initial Frame menu box.
How can I increase the font size of menu items and dialog box fonts from within Frame? I can increase the font size where I type, but I am having difficulty seeing the fonts in dialog boxes. The File Open dialog box is particularly tricky, since it is the first one that comes up, and its font size is minute. In EPIC, you can pass the fonts to the application by running the following command in a shell: epic -font encoding:iso88591-family:helvetica-size:14 When I try that with Frame, the format of the font is not recognized: maker -font encoding:iso88591-family:helvetica-size:14 Frame returns the message: **Warning: Cannot convert string "encoding:iso88591-family:helvetica-size:16" to type FontStruct ** So, what is the magic format where a font encoding is readable by Frame, and then Frame can turn it into a FontStruct that Frame recognizes? Thanx for any pointers, Sharon
