Sparx EA Font
« on: July 15, 2008, 04:36:56 am »
Is there a way to change the font Sparx EA uses, especially in the properties fields?

I'm dealing with data that has directed quotation marks, i.e., non-ASCII characters. The glyphs are, at least to my tired old eyes, indistinguishable from undirected quotation marks in EA's default font or from each other. I figured that I might have better luck with a different type face, but EA doesn't seem to react when I change Windows' font properties

Thanks for any and all help.

Hi Steve,
If you are using EA 7.1 there should be an option of Crtl + mouse scroll to enlarge the text in properties window of every element. Maybe that could help..

Thanks for the pointers. The suggestion about the options window only applies to diagrams, unfortunately, whereas my problem lies with text fields. As for the ctrl-mouse trick: I hadn't known EA 7.1 supports it! It is helpful, though still not perfect. The face (Tahoma?) does a poor job at displaying non-ASCII characters.... any other tricks up your sleeve?
