  • mercy - you can change the event sheet font size in Preferences, or by holding control and scrolling the mouse wheel in the event sheet view.

  • You have done nice work at increasing the fonts in the "Parameters for System" window at CTRL+MouseWheelUp.

    Problem is the small text size below the icons in the "Add Action" window

    and the sentence explaining what a command does in the Upper Left corner of "Parameters for System" window.

    Can you please tell which default Shell UI font is Windows using there? Sans Serif? Arial?

    I may have solved this problem:

    I changed all these default tiny unreadable fonts from something (tahoma?) to Verdana! That did it!!

    The very nice font resulting from the solution below compared to the default tiny font size appears now twice bigger and much more readable in all relevant - previously unreachable - places of Construct 2 mentioned by users here in this topic.

    It is not possible to change the font size. However you may change the font type.

    To do this:

    1. Open the Start Menu

    2. In the Start Menu Search box type regedit and press Enter.

    3. Locate: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes

    4. In the right pane, right click on MS Shell Dlg and click on Modify.

    5. Type in the name of the font you want to use and click on OK

    NOTE: You can get the name of the font from the Font Folder Location C:\Windows\Fonts. Right click on the single font and click on Properties to see the file name. For a font group, you will need to open it first to see the single fonts in it. Be sure that you use the exact same font name that is listed. Do not include the Regular part or file extension in the font name. For example, I would type Impact instead of Impact Regular or Impact.ttf.

    6. In the right pane, right click on MS Shell Dlg 2 and click on Modify

    7. Type in the name of the font you want to use and click on OK

    8. Close regedit.

    9. Logoff and logon, or restart the computer to apply the font changes.
