Font size in embedded browser

It was a pleasure to meet some of you at the recent TC conferences in
Boston. I have a user who is complaining that the fonts in his embedded
browser windchill are too small. I went to his computer to check and
sure enough they were smaller than normal. This user does not normally
work at my site. Is there some type of option to control these font
sizes in the embedded browser?
Hes using WF5 on a Win7 64 machine, WC 9.1.
Thanks,

Same font problem here on several workstations, but not all
workstations. We have a mix of Win7 and WinXP workstations. I'm not
certain if the problem is restricted to just one OS or not.



The embedded browser on some workstations allows the user to use
increase the font size using the Control key along with rolling the
mouse wheel.



But on some workstations that technique does nothing (though the
technique does work for those users in other apps on the same
workstation, so it's not a mouse driver issue).



I have seen no resolution to this font issue on the PTC support site nor
in the Forums.



We'll see if this most recent posting yields a solution, but many out
here in Windchill Land are suffering. (Are you listening, PTC?)

Thats what I'm seeing here as well. Nothing seems to increase the font
size. CTRL scroll does nothing.

Try opening Internet Explorer and changing the font size there. "Ctrl
plus" makes it bigger, "Ctrl minus" makes it smaller, "ctrl zero" resets
it to normal. Then reopen pro/e. Pro/e uses the same font scaling
settings as were in I.E.

Our stand-alone IE font settings are having no impact on our Embedded
Browser font settings.



In fact, on our problem workstations, the Ctrl + Wheel Scroll works as
expected. And even at normal 100% view, the stand-alone browser looks
fine. It is only the Embedded Browser that has the microscopic fonts
which are unchangeable.



BTW, "Ctrl plus" and "Ctrl minus" are the same as Ctrl + Wheel Scroll.

I have the same problem.

I have my computer which is Win 7 64 that I can use the ctrl+scroll wheel to change the font size. I got my computer April 2011.

I have another Win 7 64 at my desk also that the ctrl+scroll wheel does NOT change the font size. This one was originally a Win XP 64. Our IT wiped it and installed Win 7.

I also tried the ctrl+ and ctrl- on the second computer and that doesn't work as well.

We have our 9.1 M060 production system and 10.0 M040 test environment. It's the same for both PDMLink versions on each computer. My computer works fine but the other computer does not.

Don't know if anyone saw this but Document CS49015 on PTC's site shows it's fixed in WF4 M230, WF5 M170 and Creo 20.0 M040. Good to knowit's fixed ina build that will not be released for WF4.

Good find, Stephen.



We are on WF4 m210 here and plan to move to Creo 2.0 in about a month so
we'll see if PTC's stated fix is accurate.



However, I have only cautious hope since I have seen the symptomatic
tiny fonts in circumstances beyond those described in the PTC document
(e.g. not restricted to laptops).



Time will tell.

Wow. M220 was released Feb 2012 and it out of standard and extended support. Has that ever happened before?

Thank you Randy for the heads up.
