font size for OSD parameters
« on: 29 / April / 2008, 05:19:02 »

Hello Great Builders,
I am completely green in programming, so I am surprised and deeply impressed by Your work in CHDK. I am at the beginning, trying to open all these huge possibilities by myself. So no stupid questions. The only one is - how to make the digits of OSD parameters larger, to let me read them without glasses. I have already changed the Menu font and it is OK. But small digits of e.g. DOF drive my eyes into awfull dance.

Thanks in advance

Still waiting for advise

I copied a set of fonts that was posted here a month or so ago. They range from 9 to 18... Give them a try--I have not tried them yet, so I cannot guarantee how you will like them or not.

Note, if I recall correctly, size 11 is about the smallest readable font.

Give it a try and let us know if it worked or not.

Changing size of osd font is not possible at the moment,it might be implemented later.
Mind you bb,he does not mean the menu font.

Thanks Bill,
I have tested You fonts. They work. But only in Menu. I have already used Verdana 20 fonts for Menu  and it is OK for me.But the problem is , how to apply bigger fonts to measuerd values shown on LCD, to make THEM readable. If I want to use these values, generated by CHDK, I must read them.

Anyway thanks for interest

 I thought, that I can change font size ON THE WHOLE SCREEN ( I mean all places of CHDK). Is it a big work to allow the change? I see, that you do not complain about the size. I am not blind, but it is sometimes impossible to read them out without not moving the camera, lying down on the ground and looking up into direct sunlite.
Can I count on You ? I belive, some smart words in program can do this.

Hopeful

I'm also interested in using a larger font for script output.
