DYAEDIT.EXE font size

Postby ray on Fri Aug 13, 2021 7:58 am

Dyalog APL/W-64

"DYAEDIT.EXE" - I have only recently discovered this is the stand alone "exe" that Dyalog provided to edit files with a ".dyalog" extension.

Is it possible to modify the font size used by Dyaedit.exe?

On today's high resolution monitors, these days my eyes are not up to reading the default 14pt(?) font size. (Sorry about that.)

Adding a menu option (as has the Dyalog Windows Session) would be nice, but simpler, maybe, would be to use the same "Session Font Size" the session uses.

Thanks.

Hi Ray,

Sorry, I do not think it's possible to increase the font size in the standalone dyaedit.exe editor.

We do have an RFE logged for this: 16441.

Regards,

Vince

For anyone else interested in this topic:

My colleague Adám has told me that the standalone editor allows changing font using both pinch zoom and ctrl+scroll for zooming/font size.

Pinch zoom requires a touchpad mouse

Ctrl+Scroll requires either a touchpad or a mouse with a wheel (or equivalent).
