How To: Change the font type and size used by ArcInfo form menus

Summary

Steps to change the font type and size used by ArcInfo form menus.

Procedure

  1. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
  2. Double-click the System icon. In the System Properties dialog box, select the Environment tab to access the User Variables for <userName>.
  3. In the Variable input field type: ARCINFOFONTSIZE
    In the Value input field enter: 7 (or the font size you prefer) and click Set.
  4. In the Variable input field enter: ARCINFOFONTNAME
    In the Value input field enter: COURIER NEW (or the font type you prefer) and click Set.

    Note:
    COURIER NEW can be replaced with any font your system allows, provided it is a fixed width (non-proportional) font. You can experiment to find a size you prefer that still allows the menus to be completely displayed.
