View Full Version : The fonts of Lightwave interface

07-30-2011, 09:05 AM
Hi all!
I recently bought a new screen with higher resolution than the previous one.
I switched up the resolution just to have problems with the system font.

Tuning the windows' setting (new font, bold) I reached a good compromise. Lightwave, on the contrary, shows very thin and almost unreadable commands.

Do you know if there is a way to change the aspect of LW fonts in menu and windows?
Many thanks for every feedback you send :)

Seem to remember there used to be issues with the fonts if you launch Lightwave from the task bar icon. If that is how you launch the program try launching Lightwave from a desktop icon or from the program menu instead.

Yep; I had the same issue before when launching from the taskbar, launching from the start menu solved that....though it would be nice if it was fixed instead.

Alas! No. In my case the trick doesn't work.
Many thanks for your help, anyway.

If you're using 10 there's a (experimental) parameter for font an size. Edit your Layout shortcut like in this example:
C:\Lightwave10.1\bin\Layout.exe -f"[email protected]"

Unfortunately it works only in Layout.
