To change the fonts, simply click on the corresponding button.


Screen Font

The font used in the File View to display the contents of the file.


Printer Font

Specifies the font to be used when printing.


2UP Font

Specifies the font to be used when printing in 2UP mode.


End of Line Indicator

You can also specify which character is to be used as the End Of Line Indicator. This character will be displayed at the end of every line if the Show EOL option is set, or will be printed at the end of every line if the Print End of Line option is selected in the Print dialog box.


Use DOS/OEM character set when viewing file

This is equivalent to the DOS/OEM Char Set option (on the View menu while viewing a file).


Use DOS/OEM character set when printing

The same as above - but for printing. Enable this option if you are printing files that contain line drawing characters. Note that this will only work if the selected font supports the OEM character set.






V only allows use of non-proportional (or fixed-pitch) fonts (like Courier) when displaying files. This makes file display, block highlighting and line wrapping much quicker than would be possible using proportional fonts (like Arial or MS Sans Serif).

Screen fonts can also be selected from the Fonts menu.

When printing, it is usually best to use the printer's own built in font (if it has any) - it looks much better than Courier. For HP LaserJet printers, you should be able to select a font called LinePrinter. Printer fonts have a small printer icon next to them in the Font Selection List.

Proportional fonts may be chosen when printing, however, line wrapping will not work correctly. Click here for further details.

Not all fonts share the same character set. Because of this, you may need to reselect the End Of Line Indicator whenever you select a new font.

The Printer fonts may also be selected from the Print Dialog box.
