Coordinate system size

Hi Everyone,


Is there any way to make a coordinate system visualy larger, maybe my eyes are not what they used to be, but seeing what axis is what is difficult. Thanks.

Bob,


Olaf Corten would know this better than me, but I seem to recall a hidden config.pro option (you have to type it in manually; it's not recognized by Find or type forward) with a name like text_height_factor that controls how big alphanumerical annotations appear in the graphics area. IIRC, the default value is 50, and setting the value lower makes the graphics area text bigger. I believe the values can be changed from 0 to 100. I haven't used this since Wildfire, so hopefully someone else can chime in.

Is there a config option that lets you set the default Axis Length for the Display Zoom-dependent property of a coordinate system? Mine defaults to 37.060 (inches). 98% of the time I have to change it to 3.000. It would be nice to have that as the default value. 

 

Thanks Dave,

The hidden config option text_height_factor worked to make the text large enough for me to read comfortably.
