Task Builder Fonts

Use this option to select a customized font to be used for the Visual view and the AML view of the Task Builder's Steps Window. A different font can be used for each view. The default fonts used in the Task Builder interface are Segoe UI 9 pt. regular for the Visual view and Courier New 10 pt. regular for the AML view. There are a variety of other fonts to choose from if you wish. For the best appearance, use TrueType fonts.

    The current font for each view is shown.

Parameters

Visual View

The font to be used when Visual mode is selected from the View menu. We suggests an easy to read font for this view, such as Tahoma, since Visual mode is meant to provide a clear, natural-language description about the task's steps.  Click the Change button to select a new font.

AML View

The font to be used when AML mode is selected from the View menu. We suggests a fixed-width font, such as Courier, for this view, since AML view is typically used for fine, programmatic refinements to task steps.  Click the Change button to select a new font.
