Thread: Mission Briefing - font / text size?

    Hi Jim I figured it out by playing around with it! Sadly the font face will not change in the FSX briefing window (it does change in the online HTML tho?) - I have tried trebuc and segoeuisl to no avail. But what a difference tho!!!! cheers!

    Well, this one <u> starts it and this one </u> ends it so everything between the tags will be underlined, if you wanted to do a whole paragraph in bold then you could do like your example

    <u>
    This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph.
    </u>

    or like this, either way's the same in the browser:

    <u>This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph. This is a paragraph.</u>

    I didn't see this post last night apparently, sorry. I just tested <font face= on the kneeboard and it seemed to work fine? One thing you have to watch out for is spaces in attributes, if you have spaces you need to enclose them with quotes, take Comic Sans MS for example:

    <font face="comic sans ms">text</font>

    When in doubt use quotes, it never hurts anything.


    While you're at it try an image:

    <img src="..\SimObjects\Airplanes\Bombardier_CRJ_700\Texture.2\thumbnail.jpg">

    The ..\ means go up one level (..\..\ means go up two levels, just an FYI), so nobrief.htm is in the Uires folder, going up one level puts you in the Microsoft Flight Simulator X folder, then from there down to SimObjects\Airplanes\Bombardier_CRJ_700\Texture.2 and display thumbnail.jpg

    ...if the image is in the same folder as the html then all you need is the filename:

    <img src=airplane.jpg>

    ...image alignment, this will position the image on the right, sort of embedded into the paragraph:

    <img align=right src="..\SimObjects\Airplanes\Bombardier_CRJ_700\Texture.2\thumbnail.jpg">
    <font face=tahoma size=2>This is a paragraph of tahoma text wrapped around an image aligned to the right. The CRJ (Canadair Regional Jet) family of aircraft was derived from the Canadair Challenger business jet, which began its operational life as the LearStar 600. The Bombardier Canadair CRJ700, which entered service in 2001, is a stretched version of the CRJ100/200 regional jet, with increased seating capacity from 50 to 70. With increased length and upgraded landing gear, the CRJ700 features a longer wing span and leading edge slats. Like other members of the CRJ family, the CRJ700 features an electronic flight instrument system (EFIS) avionics suite and "glass cockpit" instrumentation.</font>

    ...you can adjust the size of the image (in pixels) if needed:

    <img width=256 height=128 src="..\SimObjects\Airplanes\C172\Texture.3\thumbnail.jpg">

    Any idea what the blank.htm is for in the UIRES folder Jim? BTW i sorted the font issue - trebuchet MS is simply given as trebuc in the FSX font folder? Changing to trebuchet MS did the trick. Thanks for all your help

    No idea, put something in it like "this is blank.htm" and maybe you'll see it show up on one of your kneeboard pages one day.
