The tab names are very hard to read on our equipment.

Is there a way to control both the font and weight?

Hi,
You can do that using QTF. for example:
	tab.Add("\1[ [ [6!Arial! Test]]]");
	tab.Add("\1[ [ [4!Courier! Test]]]");


see the menu "Assist/QTF designer" for more infos about QTF.


regards
omari.

Yes, we have tried that.
There are unintended complications because of internationalization.
Is there a way to separate out the text that needs translation from the surrounding QTF elements?

I think, you can use concatenation, and escape the Qtf from the translated string:
	tab.Add("\1[ [ [6!Arial! " + DeQtf(t_("Test")) + "]]]");
	tab.Add("\1[ [ [4!Courier! " + DeQtf(t_("Test")) + "]]]");

Oh, I see. I tried this out and it works well in managing separation of concerns regarding not poluting T++ translation files with Qtf elements.

This is great !
Thank you.
