Hello. I've been working on Rebol under Windows. Now, i'm trying it under Linux. I appreciate the high compatiblity for my programs. But the default font in VID is hardly readable. How to change it for all my programs and for the desktop too? Thank you.

I encoutered the same problem under Linux Mandrake 8.0 and also BeOS Personal Edition 5.

Hi Nicolas and Didier, I'm not sure if I remember but have look at: http://www.escribe.com/internet/rebol/m17310.html I hope this could solve your problem... regards Cyphre

Hi Cyphre. Thanks for your good help. I have a question about the words : system/standard/face/font I didn't know they existed. Which documentation is needed to learn more about these (and probably many others of this kind). Where to find it ? I feel it difficult to find detailed information about VID. Happyly this mailing list is a good place for this. Thanks.

Hi Ammon. Here's the response i got from Cyphre. It works fine. ==================================================== put this function in your user.r (watch out line breaks): -------------------snip--------------------------- set-default-font: func [ "sets default font for /View" font-blk [block! word!] "block of font attributes" ][ system/standard/face/font: make system/standard/face/font font-blk system/view/vid/vid-face/font: make system/view/vid/vid-face/font font-blk foreach [w s] system/view/vid/vid-styles [s/font: make s/font font-blk] ] -------------------snip------------------------------ then you can use for example: set-default-font [ name: "fixedsys" ;or your favorite font ] you can also put into the block any of these standard font parameters: [ name: "arial" style: none size: 12 color: 0.0.0 offset: 2x2 space: 0x0 align: 'center valign: 'center shadow: none ]

This list *IS* the official documentation on VID. ;-) No, really there is very little information on VID currently available, but I beleive that they are hard at work at RT creating something as it is probably the most requested improvement (at least from the developers).

Some people here have created tools to help with this sort of thing. Naturally, rebol is very good at examining itself. Check out Brett Handley's CodeConscious rebsite (REBOL.com/sites/Code C./Docs) in the View Desktop. http://www.codeconscious.com/index.r Especially http://www.codeconscious.com/rebsite/vid-ancestry.r and http://www.codeconscious.com/rebsite/vid-notes.r And there are others, but that's a start. :) Anton.

Rebol docs(especially View/VID) are well known problem ;-) IMO the best docs I know are here: http://www.rebolforces.com/archive/view099users.html I learned from them all that basics and understood the philosophy of View. After this the best way to learn more details was exploration of whole system object and see how all that stuff works. From my POW it was like playing adventure game. Lot of fun, useful information and real rebol experience. Another great source is this mailing list so if you are getting stuck in "the game" you can always ask here ;-) regards Cyphre
