Lazarus 2.0.2 - console output font size
« on: April 19, 2019, 11:10:16 pm »
Just upgraded from 1.8.2. to 2.0.2, think the console in/output window is an improvement. But is there any way to reduce the font size. Terminal output looks around 12pt and I'd like to reduce it to say 10pt. Looked through all the options and can't find anything.

I'm not understanding what the "console in/out" window is?
Are you referring to the messages window?

Maybe, you should join the club:
New tabs in Console window take up more space...

Nope. The "console" window is kind of a text-terminal emulation to which the standard Input and Output files are redirected. It's accessed through the menu: "View > Debug windows > Console In/Output"

Strange. This is how it looks in vanilla 2.0.2 (attached image) and, in fact, how it looks in at least 1.6 and 1.8 too. Fixes 2.0 shouldn't be different ...

I am using latest Lazarus 2.0.3 fixes in Windows 7 and it also looks ok. Look the attached image.

Thanks for posting the screenshots, very helpful!

Unfortunately I don't have the Console input/output window either on Win10 Home 64-bit.

I have downloaded from:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/

Here is my version info from Help, About Lazarus:
Lazarus 2.0.2 r60954 FPC 3.0.4 i386-win32-win32/win64

Perhaps I must download from trunk to see the Console input/output window?

Console I/O window is only visible and usable for unix hosts.

Yeah, it must be that. In Windows a console will open automatically for console apps, while in unix it won't so in unix an extra "console" window is needed; isn't it?
