Clicking the ``Configure/Fonts'' menubutton displays the
Figure 5.13: Font Configuration Window
``Font Configuration'' window shown in figure 5.13.
You can individually customize a particular widget type font's
(1) family, (2) slant, (3) weight, and (4) Size.
To set all the widget fonts together, follow these steps:
At any time, you can choose the ``Cancel'' button to return to the
nxqddb window with your fonts unchanged.
- Set the Default font's family, slant, weight and size values.
To set these values, left-click on the word. For example,
Figure 5.14: Font's family options
from figure 5.13, clicking on the Default font's Family
value will display a popup window for you to choose a font family
(see figure 5.14).
Repeat this action for the slant, weight and size attributes.
- Click the ``Set all fonts to default'' pushbutton. Notice that
all the widget fonts are immediately set to your chosen default font.
- At this point, click the Ok button to save your settings and return
to your nxqddb window.
You'll notice that there are only two options available for the
Listbox' family selection: (1) courier, and (2) fixed. These
two fonts have a fixed character size (that is, each character occupies
the same width) so that listbox columns will always be aligned.
