Changing font size in built-in editor

 [1/5] from: dukeofperl:ml1 at: 5-Nov-2010 15:55


How do I change the font size in the built-in editor? It also needs anti-aliasing. Is there a system-wide config file? -- Duke

The built-in editor is created in VID, which is a very sparse UI toolkit. While easy to use at first, you might run into limitations quickly. Anti-aliasing is not possible, due to the View architecture in REBOL 2. Font-size can be clumsily changed by: 1. type: editor "" 2. quit the editor 3. ctx-edit/t1/font/size: 16 4. type editor "" You probably want to use a different editor. :-) -- Regards, Henrik Mikael Kristensen

Thanks for the work-around! I "live" mostly in emacs, so I'm not homeless ;) In "View" the built-in editor was simply handy. What would be cool, is if a person could use an external editor within "View". -- Duke

external-editor: func [file [file!]] [ call reduce ["gvim" file] ] :-P
