Howto change UltraEdit font style in column mode Fri - Feb 8, 2008

Posted by supriyatna in All, Howto.

I like to try to change the default font style at UltraEdit text editor to Consolas (the new font type from Windows Vista/Office 2003). For your reference, currently i used UltraEdit version 12 -and- 13. Simple! I just go through menu View>Set Font… and i can get exactly what i want. But wait… when i tried switch to column mode the font style will changed back to the Courier New, although i have tried to set it up using View>Set Font…(in column mode) that was not much help, the font style in column mode still using Courier New.

I have tried to find out in menu Advance>Configuration…, but there is no lucky. Ok, so if you got the same problem, don’t worry i have found the solution to change the font style in column mode.

You should edit manually uedit32.INI (UltraEdit Configuration file) at %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\IDMComp\UltraEdit\uedit32.INI go to [FixedFont] section (you can use search command or CTRL+F), and change the font type at “FaceName=” entry from “FaceName=Courier New” into “FaceName=Consolas“.

Save your changes, re-start UltraEdit and try to edit in column mode, you will find the font style in both normal and column mode is now become Consolas.

They fix this issue… now you can add the desired font from View menu.

Thanks, it worked, and for font size, you need to change “Height=”, just below “FaceName=”, I don’t know what the value means, but you may use the same one.
