Font Issue in 6.1

Jeremy,

Just wanted to add my thanks... This wasn't a critical issue, but will
be well appreciated by my clients.

Sure, I remember that one off the top of my head. Open MFGSYS.INI up
and scroll almost the bottom of the document.

You will then see:

font23=??????
font24=??????


The ??? representing what the current font is. Replace what is there
with the following:

font23=FixedSys
font24=FixedSys


Good luck,
Jeremy
I tried searching the Archives but I found nothing. What do I need to fix the font issue? Can someone point me in the right direction. The person who does our labor just saw the Office Data Collection Screen in 6.1 and almost cried.

I start conversion Friday at Midnight. I just got the 6.1 test server up. I know. I am cutting it way too close!

Todd,
Check the archives, We had this font issue, and I went to great
lengths
to fix it as well as the issue that every time I installed a client,
the
font settings were reset on the server.
Basically, I created a batch file to run the install. It maps the
drive
if it is not, copies my special settings from a subdirectory under the
UD directory to the local drive. Creates desktop shortcuts to point
to
the modified files (also let's each user open RB to the last report
they
opened using this trick). It also uses a .reg file to setup ODBC in
the
registry of computer. Total install time for clients that do not
need a
new copy of the progress client is under a minute.

If you would like details, let me know.

PS. The font fix also fixes Office Data Collection. "Epicor have
misplaced their thinking caps when the switched the fonts."
