change the SAS LOG window font permanently?

OK, I am having one of those days where I can't figure out how to do the most basic things... How do I permanently change the font used for the Log window in SAS (I have 9.3)? I like Inconsolata, it is easier with my poor eyesight.

Thanks!

Michelle

Thanks, I have already changed the font for the Enhance Editor.

What I can't figure out is how to permanently change the font for the Log.

I have figured out how to change the Log for the current session (click on the Log window, then Tools->Options->Font), but want to make this change permanent...

Okey You need to save the settings when you exist.

Try this : Tools ---> Options ----> Preferences

               Here tick mark the option " SAVE SETTINGS ON EXIT"

It should solve your problem.

----> right click in the log window

            then options

                 then fonts

                    and select the font you prefer

then either

use the "save settings on exit" feature

or

issue command    (in the log window)

===> WSAVE

and remember to close your session properly

and backup your sasuser.profile
