changing font size in Viewtable window

Hi,

 

In a Windows environment on the current version, is there a way to increase the font size after bringing up a SAS dataset by double-clicking it?  Increasing the font size through the Tools...Options...Fonts only affectes the Program Editor window...

 

Thanks!

Looks like the VIEWTABLE font is controlled by SYSGUIFONT option, set only at startup.  That also controls other things (like the log font), so be aware of the risk here.

 

-SYSGUIFONT "Courier" NORMAL 10

 

for example would change it to Courier 10 point font.

 

See https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/comp.soft-sys.sas/UpSPzdtucf8 for example (Paul Dorfman asked how, and Paul Hamilton gave the above answer) - and for another more esoteric (SCL) option that might work better for what you want, from Randy Herbison.

Outstanding!  That will work just fine for the situaion I was facing.

 

We occasionally do training sessions with different departments in geographically distant regions using screen sharing in a conference room.  Big monitor in their conference room but the monitor resolution is pretty poor for text.  I could increase the font size via the menu for the program editor, but when I clicked on a SAS dataset to show the results of a technique, they couldn't see the values very well. 

 

Thanks!
