Poor Eyesight and Font Sizes

01 Mar 2018, 07:51

I am new to Pulovers Macro Creator and to the forums but have written a couple of macros to automate processing eBooks in Calibre.

Are there any settings which can increase the font sizes in Macro Creator?

Unfortunately my eyesight is not particularly good and I find that the icons, gui and macro window fonts are too small for comfort. I think part of this is due to my high definition monitor.

I have made all the changes I can in Win7 and found a couple of utilities which have helped generally but the changes have not helped with the Macro Creator. I use a magnify program which helps but is not ideal.
(the first magnify program I tried screwed up the display of Macro Creator)

I don't know if it has a setting to configure fonts etc but it is open source, you can find the AutoHotkey code of PMC here:
https://github.com/Pulover/PuloversMacroCreator

I'm sure it won't be easy for a beginner to change that code, but you can try to increase the font-size of the listview for example to begin with and see how that works for you.

For the main Gui inserting one line here https://github.com/Pulover/PuloversMacr ... r.ahk#L988 might do the trick:

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

Gui, Font, s14 ; use font size 14 


If that works out well and you find specific guis to be difficult to read you try to find that Gui and add a similar line.
Layout will change and things may overlap so it is not a "cure"

(there are a lot of Guis so a lot of work but might be worth the effort)

It might need some training but Microsoft has sponsored a bunch of tools that are coming for free with your OS: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Accessibility/windows
And yes, it won't help if you're running your monitor out of spec (changing its resolution etc.). Well, I'm sure you already knew that. :)
