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