Problem: Forms menu fields and widgets do not align correctly
Solution or Workaround
Why do fields and widgets in a forms menu not line up as in FORMEDIT or in the .menu file?
ARC/INFO assumes that the font used is a constant width font, and allocates space in the menu accordingly. If a proportionally spaced font is used, ARC/INFO does not align the fields correctly.
The font used for a forms menu should be a constant width font. Any of the courier or lucida-sans fonts are constant width fonts.
- ARC/INFO interface looks different in version 7.1.x on Sun Solaris platform
- control the font in AML menus (Sun/OpenLook only)
- Controlling fonts and colors in AML menus (Motif only)
- Change the font type and size used by ArcInfo form menus
