Re: [NTB] Small text
- Larry ... I believe reducing the size in this way works only with
'scalable' fonts (though that is most fonts these days). If you try it
with a system font such as MS Sans Serif or the old Courier, you can
type in whatever small number you like in the size box but you'll not
get any reduction in the font itself once it has reached its inbuilt
You mention 'Small Fonts'. I find that handy in the Headings list of a
crowded Outline document (which is of course another area where NoteTab
Pro supports the full range of fonts). It's also useful in the grid of
Mailbag Assistant (allows you to see all the columns), but that's

It rather amuses me sometimes to realize how lazy we can get. I am just
guilty of this as you are - who knows, maybe even more so ;-) It just
occurred to me to try it and it is rediculously easy to try. I used
"Courier New" and I went to the menu bar and selected
Font and then in the box labeled "Size", it had a 10 and I highlighted
and typed in 4. The font decreased until it was practlcally unreadabel

to 4 as I had left it. I changed it back to 10 and everything was
- Hi Sauron,
>Thank you everyone... Mark, Jody, Larry!!Thanks everybody and David I think explained why I am not always
able to use that method which I basically only use in image
editors. ;) I still suggest you try out Eric's TxtPrint Library
for printing though - you can even print a selection with it.

- Hi Larry,
Like it says in the manual that came with the computer,
there's more than one way to do anything in Windows.

- Hi Jody and all,
I second the motion on the TextPrint utility. It's real
handy, opens up from NoteTab and has a gob of options. I
added two buttons on my Utilities button bar -
Print/preview document and Print/priview selection.
When it rains it pours, huh Jody? Hope you feel better
