7.x: Unreadable fonts
Posted by Aleksandr Alekseev on 29 August 2012 21:45


EurekaLog (IDE add-on) and/or EurekaLog's tools use bad/unreadable font.


EurekaLog use system's settings for fonts. It uses lfMessageFont (SystemParametersInfo with SPI_GETNONCLIENTMETRICS) for general font and GetStockObject(ANSI_FIXED_FONT) for mono-width font.


A). Adjust your system font settings.

B). Specify override for fonts settings:

  1. Open regedit.exe
  2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\EurekaLab\EurekaLog\7.0
  3. Create subkeys "FontGUI" and "FontMono" (without quotes).
  4. Create one or more string values with the following possible names: "Name", "Height", "Style", "Charset", "Orientation", "Pitch", "Quality". Specify your own values.

Note: both solutions are applicable for any tool, including EurekaLog Viewer.
