Change Font

Ribbon Change Font


Press the Change Font button on the ribbon bar.
Change Font dialogue
This changes how the text will be displayed from this point on in the report. The settings you make will remain in effect until you explicitly change them. The program determines what the current settings are from the current script line. There is a sample area showing you what the new font settings would look like.

Although all of these options come under the Font Change button, it does in fact cover five separate script commands (see below).

The sample scripts provided show all of these features being used. Use them to help you understand all of these options. Only the settings that are changed will get put into the script file.
Font
(Command syntax)Font properties

Use the various options to set the font size, typeface and style. There are 3 styles that can be applied - bold / italic / underlined.
Align
(Command syntax)
Alignment properties
Choose between left / centre / right to change the way text is aligned in the future.

Note that the TAB command will only have an effect if left alignment is being used.
Colour
(Command syntax) 
Colour property

Use the dropdown listbox to select the colour of the text.

See below for more details about selecting colours.
Highlight
Command syntax
Highlight property
Use the dropdown listbox to select the background colour used for text. Note that it only colours the back of the actual words, and not the spaces above and below. It does, however, colour the spaces between words on each line.

See below for more details about selecting colours.
Banner
Command syntax
Banner property
Use the dropdown listbox to select the background colour used for text and blank lines. It differs from HIGHLIGHT in that it colours blank lines.

If you want text to appear transparent on a non-white banner, then you must set the highlight to the same as the banner colour. Also, separators show over the top of the banner colour.


Custom colour property (for colour, highlight and banner)Note that you can use a custom colour as well. You are not tied down to the colours available from the list. To use a custom colour, select (Custom) from the droplist to display a colour dialogue.

Use the options and features available to choose your desired colour. See the command syntax for details on how custom colours are represented within the script.
