When using the font navigator is there a way to set the "font text display" window (the window to the right of the typeface, that displays text in the selected typeface) to a larger size?
In all the previous versions the window was fairly large, but now it's very small.
Thanks!

Hover the mouse over the bottom right of the floating dialog (red circle, below image) and click and drag to re-size it out.

You will need to mouse over a new font to get the dialog to refresh and display the larger size.

Thanks, I guess I left out the part where I want the "new" size to remain the default. I'm thinking there is a line in one of the .ini (if they still have them) files I could change?

SignLab will remember the last used size for this dialog. If it is not working, then there are 2 scenarios we can think of that are relevant for SignLab 9.1.

First please confirm what SignLab version you are using. Go to Help > About and let us know the version and the production date. Also press 'r' on the keyboard and let us know the build number.

S1) Not an administrator. Ensure the user on the computer is an administrator. If not an administrator, ensure that the user has full access (read/write) to the SignLab folder and all sub folders.

S2) Multiple instance enabled. Disable multiple instance (Options > Multiple Instance) and close SignLab. Restart SignLab and resize the dialog. Now close SignLab again. Restart and confirm the dialog size. You can enable Multiple Instance when you are complete.
