Alternate font height

WTSupported in traditional Synergy on Windows




The ALT_FONT_HEIGHT environment variable sets the height of the alternate font (in conjunction with ALT_TYPE_FACE and ALT_FONT_WIDTH) if an alternate font is not otherwise specified.


The height, in logical units, of the font.


Synergy/DE on Windows uses the specified font height for application windows greater than or equal to 132 columns (if automatic font switching is enabled).

The font height can be specified in one of three ways:

If the current font is not available in the requested size, Synergy/DE on Windows substitutes the font that most closely resembles the specified font.

We recommend that you use the FONT_ALTERNATE environment variable rather than ALT_FONT_HEIGHT.

Setting location

The environment or the [synergy], [dbr], or [myprog] section of synergy.ini (where myprog is any .dbr file).
