Customizing the Font Selector in Word Assistant
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, version 6.0
You can customize the Font Selector (FS) through its initialization file, FONTSEL.INI. This file is located in the Windows program directory.
Word Assistant (WA) is an add-on program to Word version 6.0 for Windows. WA contains several components, including:
WA modifies the Format menu in Word 6.0 for Windows to include FS. This utility is used to format text and to display fonts as printed. It is true WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get"). You can modify this utility to better suit your needs. The modification is done through the FONTSEL.INI file. This is the initialization file for the FS component of WA.
The following is a sample FONTSEL.INI file with comments and settings to modify the look of Font Selector options:
[Window Position] Left=340 Top=83 > Determines the position and size of Width=501 the FS on startup. Height=619 [Settings] Tab=Normal > Used to set the default tab on startup. Normal or As Font. AsFontSize=24 > Sets the size of fonts displayed in the As Font view. NormalSize=24 > Sets the size of fonts displayed in the Normal view. [Misc] button=1 > Puts the Font Selector Button on the Standard Toolbar.
NOTE: Changes will take effect during the next instance of Word 6.0 for Windows. If you make a change to the FONTSEL.INI file, the FS database file, FONTTOOL.DBF, must be regenerated. This is done when FS is started from the Format menu.
