Changing TCC font?

How/where do you change the TCC Prompt font?

I'd like to try to see how the monospaced Pragmata or Andale Mono would look in TCC instead of the default Lucida Console. I usually use one or the other (Pragmata or Andale Mono) for editor/console font as they have a dot in the middle of zero to more clearly differentiate it from the capital "O".

Thanks!

Assuming you're referring to stand-alone TCC (i.e., not in a TCMD tab
window), the font is a Windows console property and is changed by
clicking on the TCC icon in the title bar, then selecting Properties /
Font. (Note that these are Windows dialogs, not TCC.)

Further to that, to actually get more fonts into this dialog box
requires some registry editing, AFAIK. The OP would have to set one or
more values under
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Console\TrueTypeFont

On most systems there's already a value '0', set to 'Lucida Console'. A
second font can be added by adding value '00' (two zeroes) and setting
this to the facename of the desired font. Third font would be value
'000' etc.

The problem here is getting the facename right. If it's wrong or if the
given font is not monospaced, the dialog box content doesn't reflect
this change.

I was actually referring to the TCMD tab window. From the sound of that it sounds like the font/font size in it cannot be changed..?

Tab window fonts are set in Take Command, in the "Options / Configure
Take Command / Tabs" dialog. (Windows group, "Font" button.)

In fact, changing the font in the tab windows is easier. No need to muck around in the registry, and italics are correctly handled. From the "Option" menu, choose "Configure Take Command", then select the "Tabs" tab and click on the "Font" button.

Thanks... that works! When I was looking at that at 5am I assumed it was the font for the tabs themselves, not their content. :rolleyes: Should've given it a try.
