6.1i ISE - The font size in the Project Navigator "Transcript" window is too large

Description

The font in the Project Navigator "Transcript" window is large and does not match the font size of the characters in a document that I opened in HDL Editor.

The font size in the Transcript window also changes after I open a document in HDL Editor.

Solution

This problem is most often seen on machines with a Japanese operating system or on a machine with a unique subset of fonts installed.

You can fix this problem by doing the following:

1. Edit the "HDLEditor.cfg" file in the "$XILINX/data" directory.
2. Add a new file named "reportlang.ecc" to the "$XILINX/data" directory.

The instructions and code for the needed changes follow. You can also receive a copy of these files by contacting Xilinx Customer Support at:

http://support.xilinx.com/support/clearexpress/websupport.htm

The fix ties the font used in the "Transcript" window to that of the report viewer. To change both fonts, use the Edit -> Preferences menu option. The fix should eliminate the "changing" font and allow you to set the font in the output window.

NOTE: One effect of these changes is that the appropriate icon will not appear on the tab next to the file name at the bottom of the ISE Text Editor window.

Make the following two changes to the "HDLeditor.cfg" file in the "$XILINX/data" directory:

1. Add the following line at the end of the [Languages] section:
language7=Report

2. Add the following section at the end of the file:

[Report]
Chroma=dword:00000001
Case=dword:00000001
Comment Start 1=""
Comment End 1=""
Comment Start 2=""
Comment End 2=""
Extra word chars="#"
Keywords=reportlang.ecc
Extensions=log,syr,bgn,bld,mrp,tw1,par,dly,pad,twr,ibs,mppr,lpk,lpc,cmd_log

Create a file named "reportlang.ecc" in the "$XILINX/data" directory and copy the following text into the new file:
