When will we be able to change the font size on the Desktopp

HP Recommended
I share the concern voiced by several others regarding the font size when viewing the Calendar and others on the Desktop version. The new high resolution screens result in very small fonts and the Large Icon and Large Font settings don't work yet. Or am I mistaken on this?

See some discussion on this topic here: http://discussion.brighthand.com/palmhandhelds/showthread.php?s=2d3934f26ccbdc4a668ac202ac98c667&thr... I have sent a message to the Palm Source folks to get them to log it as a bug. Palm Source makes Palm Desktop these days - not palmOne. They are very disctinct companies.

Using "regedit" I was able to change the font size larger for use with the Palm Desktop software.

  Run "regedit" and export (save) a backup copy for safety
    File  >  Export  

  Search for "FontSmall"
    Edit  >  Find  >  Find what  >  FontSmall

  Click on FontSizeGeneral and change the "Value data" to 16

  Exit "regedit"

  Run Palm Desktop software and enjoy the new legible font size!


  Notes:
  1) The location of the Palm Desktop software on my system using "regedit" is:
        HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\U.S. Robotics\Pilot Desktop\Core
        * Your location of the Palm Desktop software may differ.

  2) I tested this on monitors using resolutions of 1280 x 1024 and 1024 x 768
        The font size is noticeably readable and much, much better

  3) You may also change the font family from the default (Arial) to another, such as Verdana, etc.
        FontCard    (Changes the font family in the side panels)
        FontGeneral    (Changes the font family for most of the program fonts)

  4) Operating System: Windows XP Pro
        Palm Desktop v4.1.4
