change ghostview (gv) menu font size


Hi All,

How to change the GV menu font size? (not the document font size which is set by scale). man and info don't mention anything about this.

Thanks,
Mike.

In your .Xdefaults (or .Xresources) you can set it with a line like:
Code:
gv*font: -*-helvetica-medium-r-normal--*-80-*-*-*-*-*-*
I think this is not documented specifically for gv since it is a standard resource for this type of Xt program.

Cheers,

Evo2.

Thanks evo2. Do you know if it's possible to modify the menu layout (normal and spartan mode)?. Is it possible to add or remove entries?.

From the man page it seems that --spartan just does --style=gv_spartan.dat. I looked for that file on my system and found it at /usr/share/gv/gv_spartan.dat. It looks like Xdefaults syntax so you may just be able to copy the contents of that file into your .Xdefaults to get the desired effect.

HTH,

Evo2.
