ScaleFontSizes Property

If IgnoreFontSizes = False, this property is used to scale all font sizes in the help target.


Applies To


Help Target (JavaHelp)


This property is used in conjunction with IgnoreFontSizes property. If IgnoreFontSizes = True, this property is ignored.

JavaHelp has a known problem that makes all fonts appear smaller (approximately 1.3 times smaller) than they should be. By setting IgnoreFontSizes property to True, you will have consistent default JavaHelp font sizes. Alternatively, you can set the ScaleFontSizes property to a real number other than default 1.0 that will scale all fonts to adjust their sizes. For example, if JavaHelp displays fonts 1.3 times smaller that they should be, you can set ScaleFontSizes to 1.3 to fix that.
