Using System Fonts

Alarm categories and Cicode functions allow you to use predefined fonts, known as system fonts, to display text. You can also configure your own fonts; for details see Configuring Custom Color Fonts.

Note: If an animation is associated with an I/O Device that does not initialize properly at startup or goes offline while the system is running, the associated animation is grayed on the relevant graphics pages (because the values are invalid). You can disable this feature with the [Page]ComBreak parameter. See Handling Communication Errors in Reports.

To define a system font:

  1. In the Project Editor or the Graphics Builder, choose System|Fonts. The Fonts dialog box appears.
  2. Enter your font properties.
  3. Click Add to append a new record, or Replace to modify an existing record.
