Ansys font size issue

Ansys Font Size

The main problem while using Ansys in Linux is that the fonts are very small and almost unreadable. To change this, first click “Run” from the startup screen.

 

The workspace should look like this.

 

At the top of the screen there is a menu bar.

 

Click on the “MenuCtrls” drop down menu, then click “Font Selection …”.  This will bring up a window that will allow you to change the font size in Ansys.

 

From here you can choose which font size, or type you would like.  Please Note you will have to do this for each menu item.

 

If this does not work, then there may be something else to try:

 

You will need to be logged in to Mosaic Windows in order to do this. Make sure that the user is not logged into Linux.

1.       Open Windows Explorer and navigate to “U:linux.ansysansys13.0”

a.       You may have to show hidden files and folders.  To do so click the “Tools” menu item, then click “Folder Options…”, then click the “View” tab.  Then select the radio button for “Show hidden files and folders”, please see the screen shot below.

2.       Right click the file and click copy.  Now paste the file and rename it “ansys13.0_backup.reg”

3.       Right click on the “ansys13.0.reg” file and click edit

4.       Now you should be able to manually edit the font sizes.

There may be a problem with this file. If this is the case, then first, delete what is in the file then copy and paste this into the file:

Lastly, if that does not work:

Delete the file that was named “ansys13.0_backup.reg”, then rename the current registry file to “ansys13.0_old.reg”.  Then log out and back in to Mosaic Linux.
