Step-by-step guide

You can change the default size for an entire Panel by using a Theme and creating a Style for the Panel's Contents area and a 'Font Advanced' Style Type. This allows you to set the Font Family (generally the specific fonts or a style like Sans-Serif), the Font Size, and the Font Weight (bold, narrow, etc). To do this:

  1. Navigate to the main Vinyl IDE page and choose Define your look & feel *under the *Create menu
  2. Locate the Name of your Vinyl app, and click on the paintbrush Themes icon
  3. Find the Theme for the application you are using. If you do not have a theme for this app yet, create a new one from this page.
  4. Click on the Advanced Settings button for the Theme
  5. On the left under Real Estate Areas, click on Panel
  6. In the bottom panel on the right, click Create to create a new style for this part of the theme
  7. Select Contents section underInterface , which represents the main inner section of the panel
  8. Select Font Advanced for** Style Type** . Font Advanced allows you to configure various font styles. Value1 is used for font names. Value2 is font size. This can be any unit of measure. Value3 is the boldness. Example:

font-family: {0}; font-size: {1}; font-weight: {2};
