These fonts govern what you see on the Legacy screens themselves. The Stretch fonts when resizing and the Min. font size and Max. font size have to do with how your screens look when they are not at full size (maximized to your monitor). This will scale the fonts.

These options are global options that affect ALL reports. This is a great way to keep all your reports uniform. You can always change an individual report by opening that report and adjusting the fonts in the report options.

What a wonderful tip. Will this also affect the size of the font on my screen? Sometime the font is so small I have a difficult time seeing it even with my glasses.

I love the idea that I can use consistent font size for all my reports but my everyday use of the screen is important.

I love all these tips they help so much.

Thank you for sharing them with all of us.

The "Screen Fonts" control what you see on your screens and you can make them larger. You can also play with the Windows Font settings.
