option to change the font of just the log grid

Post by jpierce » Thu Mar 21, 2019 7:36 pm

I see an option for changing the font of the entire program, but I really only want to change the font of the log grid. Specifically, I want to change it to a fixed width font, because some of the stuff being logged is output from a mainframe program where they line things up based on fixed width fonts.

Hello,

Thanks for submitting your idea. It's a pretty good idea to use a monospaced font in this case for the table only (and not for the whole UI because that would indeed look weird!).

But I have one question though: how about the font size? Would you be able to pick a specific font size for the table as well? Or just the font name? Usually, monospaced fonts like "Courier [new]" have bigger characters than usual fonts, for the same font size (e.g. 11). I'm asking because right now you can increase/decrease the font size using the usual keyboard shortcut Ctrl+/Ctrl- for both the log entries table and the log entry details panel below.

Please let me know what you think, I'm adding this to our backlog and I'll post a message in this thread when the feature will be released.

Thanks,
Xavier

Well actually, I just realized: what about having the same font for both the log entries table AND the log entry details panel at the bottom? Because if you need a monospaced font for the table, you may also want to have the same this when looking at the entry details. What do you think?

Yes, I guess I was expecting the typical font chooser that let you pick both font and size, but didn't think to mention it.

And yes, I agree that it would also be necessary in the details pane. For us, we'd set both to monospace. Not sure about other people.

Hello,

LogMX v7.7.0 has just been released, and it includes this feature :) (you can now change the table font in Options > Display)
