AQ: Fonts in the Program

In today's world one has many choices because of technological improvements and designs. If you walk down an aisle in a grocery store, your selection of any particular item is vast and larger than in times past.

Computer programs are the same, one can research and determine which particular program will be what is needed for the task. Each program will have unique features as well as standard ones. The same goes with the fonts we use for various tasks.

You may wish to type a letter in one font but use a different one if you are designing something special. In Ancestral Quest there are multiple charts as well as the entering screens, notes, sources, etc.

One can change these fonts to make them larger, smaller or a different style depending on the need. To do this you simply click on "Tool" then "Preferences", once that window is open click on the tab "Fonts".

Once there, you'll be clicking on the drop down as seen above. This is where you can change a font for a specific section as well as the size of that font. Once you click "OK" the font will be changed. 

Here is where you can experiment to see if this is what you are wanting. The next section is the "Advanced Options" section:

Sometimes individuals need larger print or even smaller print. All of that is done in this area. If you decide you want it back the way it was, simply click on "Reset fonts" and that will bring everything back to the way it was in the beginning.

Enjoy this feature and others in Ancestral Quest 15!

Remember Ancestral Quest is fully FamilySearch Certified!

Comments and questions are always welcome!

Happy Ancestraling...Claire ;)
