Change a lot of font properties at once

Go to solution

Changing font properties has always been a P.I.T.A. as the only way I have been able to do it is one at a time highlight every label, decal, or string one at a time and set the properties...


I know, I know, if I had set the panel defaults before I started then I would not have to changes every single label from 14pt Segui to 18pt Tahoma one at a time...


But when you have a program that was created on a Windows 7 machine and move it to a Windows 10 all of your fonts are the wrong size now, even on the block diagram.


So what is the fastest way to fix a screen full of fonts?


Unfortunately, most readers of this Forum, including some real Experts, have not mastered the skill of being able to read the code that Posters fail to post. If we cannot see "what you did wrong", we are unable to tell you how to fix it. (Bob Schor 28 August 2018)

Ctl+a to select everything, then set the font.

I set the fonts in LabVIEW options in the Environment category for application, dialog and system fonts to Tahoma 13. For the controls and indicators that are shown to the user, I set the font for each (also to Tahoma 13) by selecting the control and then the font from the toolbar. In this way I don't have any issues with fonts in IDE and exe.
