With UltraEdit v18.104.22.1680 it is again possible to set the font and the font size for the file names in the Open File Tabs. By default the font and font size settings defined for the menus in the Windows display settings are used for the Open File Tabs. But with manually adding the following lines to uedit32.ini
usually stored in directory %appdata%\IDMComp\UltraEdit
in section [Settings]
, the default settings can be overwritten.TAB Windows Font=name of fontTAB Windows Font Height=font size valuename of font
is for example Tahoma
or Courier New
(always without double quotes even with space in font name).font size value
is a positive value like 12
defining the font size in points. In UltraEdit versions prior v15.00 the font size must have been specified with a negative value like -12
. Using a negative point size value for this setting results in ignoring the font height setting. So users updating from a version of UltraEdit prior 15.00 and having already used that setting must open uedit32.ini after the update and remove -
from the value.
For all other views like File Tree View, Function List, Template List, Macro List, etc. with the exception of the Output Window
and the Find String List
the settingsExtra Windows Font=name of fontExtra Windows Font Height=font size value
are still available in UE v22.214.171.1240 as explained above. The font size value
for Extra Windows Font Height
can be still a negative value, but now it is also possible to specify for this setting a positive value.
Note: I recommend to make this modification in uedit32.ini with Notepad and not with UltraEdit while no instance of UltraEdit is running. In general it is not good to modify the settings in the configuration file of an application while the application is currently running.
