Route Information Window

How can I change the size of the Route Information Window ?
On my PC the text in the righthand top window is barely readable.

Console Window

"Text in Right Hand Top Window" I believe you are talking about the Console which appears when a route is active, and it shows route data.

Options > User Interface > Font Settings.
Options Setting | Official OpenCPN Homepage

Console font settings for black data box that appears when a route is active.
http://opencpn.org/ocpn/sites/defaul...ifun/font1.png
Also see activate route
Marks and Routes | Official OpenCPN Homepage
More about Console black box with information in it?
http://opencpn.org/ocpn/sites/defaul...un/ZeroXTE.png

OR


Are you talking about the yellow box that displays information about routes, legs etc?

The size of that text is also controlled from Options > User Interface Fonts.


======
PS: Note regarding User Manual

The word Console Menu should appear at the top, I think.
Also we should be more explicit in referring to the "Console" where we refer to it.

I notice that
Auto Follow Auto Follow | Official OpenCPN Homepage
and
Routes and Mark Manager Route & Mark Manager | Official OpenCPN Homepage
do not show or discuss the Console window
and should probably have a link back to here http://opencpn.org/ocpn/sites/defaul...ifun/font1.png

We need a dedicated "Console" Page with description which should be located right after "Chart Info" Chart Info | Official OpenCPN Homepage

Then the other pages can refer to it as is appropriate.

Re: Route Information Window

Thank you, Mr. Gleason !
Tried to change 'User Interface scale factor' and 'Chart Object scale factor' but these changed size of the objects in charts and the size of the little box in top right hand corner. No effects on the This Leg information box.
I am enclosing a screen-dump to show how tiny the text is.

Re: Route Information Window

Neils,
Thats a decent idea, but search the User Manual on opencpn.org for those items and you will see what they control OR go to Toolbar > Options > (using the User manual menu and find it.

This yellow bubble when hoover for Routes & marks etc size of text is controled from the fonts selection.

Tell me which one it is please.

Re: Route Information Window

Dear Rick,
Thank you for your suggestion to read the Manual !
After much reading and trying, I found the solution under 'User Interface' - Fonts - Console Value - and bingo, the text is now readable.
One day I will learn it !
Again thank you !
Br,
Niels

Re: Route Information Window

So it is the same "Console" value as for the upper right black data box for an active route?
