Thread: how do I INCREASE or BOLD greek fonts in lexicon window

  1. #1

    Default how do I INCREASE or BOLD greek fonts in lexicon window

    When I open my lexicon window I can read all of the information except for the puny greek text....which is what I'm actually trying to see. It's very frustrating not being able to see all of the text clearly. Does anyone know how to remedy this situation. Many thanks in advance.

    If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things ? John 3:12 KJV

    At present there is no way to change lexicon browse fonts (that I know of). You can ask for that feature to be added, but otherwise the only work around would be to copy it to a word processor and increase the font there. There are also screen magnifying utilities native to Windows that you could also use.

    Thanks, good suggestion.

    try this workaround:

    go to Tools ---> Options --> General ---> Fonts

    and then enlarge the font size in "search Window Fonts"

    but be careful, it will affect many places(search window, resources tab, lexicon browser etc)

    I've complained about this to BW Support ... but seems no immediate solution

    God bless,

    Below you will find BibleWorks' official answer regarding this issue:

    How Can I Change the Font Size in the Analysis Window?

    In BibleWorks it is possible to change the size of the display fonts in many parts of the program. In many cases, the font sizes are controlled separately for various parts of the program, as well as different script types that are used. For some, it is helpful to make some font sizes larger than others.

    To adjust the size of the fonts in the Analysis Window:
    1. Open the Options window to the Fonts tab (BW7 and earlier) or the Fonts Panel (BW8).
    2. For "Font Set to Edit" choose BROWSE WINDOW FONTS (BW 7 & 8) or RESULTS WINDOW FONTS (BW 6 and earlier). An extra column of settings controls will appear on the right-hand side of the Font Set grid, labeled either AW, for "Analysis Window" (BW 7 & 8) or Auto, for "Auto-Info Window."
    3. Increase the number, that is the point size, for each font type that is to be made larger in the Analysis Window.
    The image below depicts the controls for this in BibleWorks 8. Some experimentation may be needed in order to achieve the desired results.
