Ignite - Set default font and size


Article ID: 52099 - Last Review: May 3, 2019

PROBLEM

You are looking to set the default Font and Font Size for all your Ignite clients. 

Note that the steps are slightly different depending on whether you are running MiCC Version 7.X or 8.X.



RESOLUTION 7.X

You can set a global default for these values via the GlobalAppSettingsEditor.  You can modify one or both of these values.

NOTE: The font type must be entered exactly as shown in the font drop down menu in ignite.

NOTE: Font sizes are a scale from 1 to 8.  The standard 'point' values for each number are as follows:
1 is 6pt
2 is 8pt
3 is 10pt
4 is 12pt
5 is 14pt
6 is 18pt
7 is 24pt
8 is 36pt

To add the values to your configuration, please do the following (note that if only adding one value, you skip the step for entering the other):

1. Go to [InstallDir]\CCM\Services\ConfigService\ and open the GlobalAppSettingsEditor.
2. Fill in the following settings on a new line if you wish to specify the default Font Size:

  • Application: (Leave this box empty)
  • SectionGroup: appSettings
  • Name: FontSize
  • Value: A number from 1 to 8 or default
  • Description: An explanation of why the change is being implemented. Note that you must enter a value here to save.

NOTE: Deleting this line in the Global Application Settings Editor will not set the system back to default.  To do that, use default as the value.

3. Fill in the following settings on a new line if you wish to specify the default Font Type:

  • Application: (Leave this box empty)
  • SectionGroup: appSettings
  • Name: FontType
  • Value: (Enter the font name, as it appears in the drop-down menu in Ignite)
  • Description: An explanation of why the change is being implemented. Note that you must enter a value here to save.

NOTE: Deleting this line in the Global Application Settings Editor will not set the system back to default.  To do that, use default as the value.

4. Click Save.  It will take 30 to 60 seconds to save.  Please wait for the confirmation box before closing the Editor.
