Modifying font settings for views and reports

Use the Select View Fonts dialog box to customize the font settings used to display text in views and reports. You can either customize the font used for each area of the view or report individually, or you can change the font settings for all areas at once.

Any changes you make to the font settings affect only the current view, and reports based on the view. The settings are added to the ACL project and persist between ACL sessions. If you create a new view, it replicates the font settings of whatever view is currently open. If required, you can change the font settings for the new view immediately after creating it.

The Change Font command is include in the toolbar by default. If it has been removed you can re-add it in the Customize Toolbar dialog box (Tools > Customize).

To modify the font settings:

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Click Change Font  in the toolbar.

    • Right-click in the view and select Select View Fonts.

  2. In the Select View Fonts dialog box, click one of the following buttons:
    • All – The selected font settings are applied to all areas of the view and report unless more specific settings are applied to individual areas.

    • Header – The font settings for the report header.

    • Titles – The font settings for column headers.

    • Data – The font settings for view and report data.

    • Totals – The font settings for report subtotals.

    • Footer – The font settings for the report footer.

  3. In the Font dialog box, make any necessary changes to the font settings and click OK.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 if you want to change the font settings for any additional areas.
  5. Click OK.
