SETUP > Settings > Stack Font Sizes > Font Size Offset ??

Post by Walter » Thu Nov 14, 2019 2:25 pm

Please pardon me if this topic was covered earlier already but I got my DM42 back from Switzerland today, fully working AFAICS and with the newest firmware installed (thanks to D & M!). :D

Now I want to reinstall my personal settings and come across the following: If I set the so-called Font Size Offsets as pictured here

I get a stack display like this

.

If, however, I set them like 0, -1, -2, -3, -4 I get a screen like this

If this is working the way it is intended, what are the positive "Font Size Offsets" good for? What did I miss?

According to the "Stack Font Sizes" section in the DM42 User Manual, the offset (positive or negative) is specified vs. the current font size selected by the F6 / Shift F6 keys. If you have already the biggest font size selected then you cannot increase it with a positive offset, which is what you may be experiencing with 2, 1, 0, -1, -2 as the 2 and 1 offsets don't increase the font size (already at its max value) and so X, Y and Z registers are displayed with the same font size. While with 0, -1, -2, -3, -4 each register Y, Z, T, L has a font smaller that it's predecessor, as long as it is within the Font Size range (if you press repeatedly Shift F6 you will end-up with all registers displayed with the smallest font size).

Merci Didier! :) I should have RTFM. ;) And I continue being astonished that this is the maximum font size - especially when displaying just two or three registers.
