Any idea to solve this issue. Only happens here.
I am using a surface laptop 13.5 inches (2256 x 1504} screen

"place your cursor where you want to de/increase the size of the text [in the right hand pane of the termbase viewer] then Hit Ctrl+/Ctrl-" worked for me! Thank you!
Hi Paul Patruno
Have you tried resetting the Window Layout? This is done via the View tab:
Hope this helps!
All the best,
Reset Windows does not work.
After the reset, the Termbase Viewer windows comes on the left, but the list of terms is still in font size 7 or 8 while the windows title and data are in font size 11 or 12. (same if I move the windows at the bottom)
If I try different layouts, no difference.
I realized that Multiterm does the exact same thing and shrink the terms from the list to tiny font hard to read.
I nee to be able to resize the list of terms properly
A few basic questions that might make a difference to the advice you require:
1. Which version of Studio are you working with?
2. Is it fully up-to-date?
3. Is MultiTerm the same version, also fully up-to-date?
4. To check this, if you have automatic updates set, just open MultiTerm and accept any update offered. If you don't have automatic updates set, go to Help > Check for Updates.
6. Have you tried a Windows Repair of Studio and of MultiTerm via Control Panel?
Now and then, especially after Windows Updates, it helps to run a Windows Repair on any complex software.
Enough questions for now...
I found the same issue in the "Reports"
Very tiny fonts and I cannot adjust the size on my Surface Laptop - 2,256x1,504 resolution display
Shall I file another discussion?
Hi again Paul Patruno
It looks as if either the default termbase font settings don't work for your particular screen size/resolution, or the default has been somehow changed and wasn't repaired via the Windows Repair. However, you can change the font settings for how they appear in MultiTerm and also for how they appear in Studio. As follows...
Firstly, there is a 'Reset Window Layout' in MultiTerm which I guess you've already tried:
You can do this with or without a termbase open. As I think this won't work for you, here follows how you can change the font settings manually.
To adjust termbase font sizes in MultiTerm (for detailed explanations, see the Studio method below this one)
You can change how the fonts appear in MultiTerm via File>Options>MultiTerm>User Interface>Hitlist settings:
You can do the above with or without a termbase open.
To adjust termbase font sizes in Studio
(how they appear in MultiTerm and how they appear in Studio are different settings)
(expanded explanations below apply to the above processes also)
You can change the font and size for termbases via the Term Recognition window when you have any document open that has any associated termbase:
My window layout may look different to yours, but clicking on the above-highlighted 'Hitlist Settings' button brings up the following:
This will change the terms list font and size, then you can adjust the Source and Target font plus those of the various fields via the other buttons back on the Hitlist Settings dialog.
If you then click on Select Fields, a dialog opens that has a list of which fields will be available with your termbase, you can just 'Select All' or select those you want to appear in your termbase window. All termbases you have added to the particular document/project will be listed and you can change the settings for each of them. As you can with termbases open in MultiTerm.
I do hope this long winded explanation solves your problem...
This will also work on the right-hand pane of the termbase viewers.
Hope this helps,
All the best
It does not work.
The changes in Multiterm Hitlist settings have no effect in both Multiterm and Studio on the font size of the list of terms
When I use my desktop display 1920 x 1080 I can see a same size font in the Termbase Viewer
This is not the case on my 2256 x 1054 display.
This is clearly a mismanagement of the font by Studio and Multiterm and I hope someone will work on this issue and fix it.
2256 x 1504 display
Hi Paul Patruno
Very interesting that this should be triggered by your screen resolution as I would expect a Microsoft Surface to have one of the same screen res ratios as PC screens.
What are your Windows Display settings, here?
Do you have your 'Scale and Layout' set to 100%?
Can you change the 'Resolution' to 1920x1080?
Otherwise, take a look here:
High resolution display issues
If looking at your screen percentage and resolution doesn't work, maybe one of the methods described on this Knowledgebase page may solve your problem...
Also, did you try Ctrl and the + key to increase the size of the font in the Reports main window?
Hi again Paul Patruno
Another question - have you tried resizing the actual Termbase Viewer window to see if that makes a difference?
Resizing is described briefly here:
Customizing the views
More detailed instructions of how to drag windows around are given here:
Displaying and managing windows
If you can't resize the Reports main window with Ctrl and the + or - key, and you have a mouse wheel then if it's set appropriately, you can use your mouse wheel with the Ctrl key pressed to resize the window...
The text in the right-hand pane of the termbase viewer suddenly was unreadable small, but for me it worked as Alison suggested to place the cursor in the right-hand pane of the termbase viewer and hit Ctrl+. To hit Reset Window Layout did not change the size.
However, I do not get the right font sizes back. Either too big or too small. SDL, please fix this!
Hi Akke Wagenaar
Akke Wagenaar said: I do not get the right font sizes back
Do you mean the fonts in the Studio Editor screen? If so, here's where you can limit the display font size to a minimum and a maximum size via File>Options:
If not, please explain which fonts you're referring to.
