7.1i ISE - ISE dialog boxes are larger on Linux than they are on other operating systems, which hinders their functionality

Description

Keywords: GUI, box, big, large, stretch, font, Red Hat

Some ISE dialog boxes (such as Wizards and iMPACT boxes) appear much bigger on Linux than they do on Solaris. This large size can hinder the functionality of the boxes.

Solution

This issue can be resolved by decreasing the font size. To list all the supported fonts for your display, use:
/usr/X11R6/bin/xlsfonts -fn "-adobe-*"

You can use an XResources file to setup a new default font size. (The .XResources file is kept in your home directory.)

Example:
To set the font to Arial, size 12, place the following line in the .Xresources file:

*systemFont: -adobe-arial-medium-r-normal--12-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
