Some users have wondered how you can change the Font sizes in the Cleverscope application.
Here's how:

With the Cleverscope application closed, open the Cleverscope.ini file (in the ..Program FilesCleverscope directory). You should find these entries:

[Cleverscope]
HideRootWindow=True
appFont=""""Tahoma"" 13""
dialogFont=""""Tahoma"" 13""
systemFont=""""Tahoma"" 13""

You can change the number values to affect different Fonts. Note that if you increase the size, you may wind up with a strange looking Control Panel.

The appfont affects the size of the font inside Selection lists, drop down lists, and displayed numbers (mostly in the Cleverscope control Panel).

The dialogFont sets the size of the Axis numbers, and Divisions values above the graph, and the Marker and text annotation text.

The systemFont sets the size of the Menu items.

Hopefully this will make it easier for you to get the sizing right for you!

In the latest version, Cleverscope 4 I was not able to make this work. I tried changing the font size in both C:\Program Files (x86)\Cleverscope4\Cleverscope4.ini and C:\Program Files (x86)\Cleverscope4\data\Cleverscope.ini.

In this modern security minded day, you cannot use program files for storage of variable data. So instead of storing it there, you can navigate to (copy into address bar at the top of a folder)
%localappdata%\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Cleverscope4
and you will find cleverscope4.ini there.
Mind you, if you change the text size, we do not scale the controls to fit, and so things will not look exactly right. Someday, when we move to the latest version of labview the windows will be scaleable. But right now, we don't want to take the performance hit.
