Crash on selecting Form Blueprint


#1

Was trying to find where font size could be changed. On my form I selected “form blueprint” and program freezes and has to be force quit. Tried twice, same result.

I had the same thing happen; I wanted the blueprint for a field but clicked “form blueprint”, not knowing any better, and got the freeze. No problems so far with individual blueprints.


#3

If you are generating the blueprint for a form that is loaded with many, many objects it is going to take quite a while for the blueprint to be completed. Maybe it was not a freeze at all but it was still processing information.


#4

It could be it just takes a long time. I waited several minutes. When I use “force quit” then the window says that Panorama is not responding. I will try giving it longer, but maybe this is not a solution anyway as to changing the font in the data sheet.


#5

No it is not a solution and no solution currently exists. This topic has been discussed on this forum recently and Jim stated he will probably add that feature somewhere down the road.


#6

Yikes! You mean I have to change the font size in EVERY FIELD?


#7

That’s a notoriously unreliable test Richard - I’ve proven it wrong many times.

I just went into PanX and chose a field. I don’t see with Field Properties or Field Blueprint any way to change the font or size. If this is not an option we may be going back to version 6.


#9

Again, no, there is no way presently to change the font size in the datasheet.

Too bad. My wife has a large monitor, Apple Cinema Display, and cannot read the small font as it is.
