Goodday from South Africa
Is it possible to resize the screen or select a font that would allow you to view the whole width of the NV input page.
For example if you use a short numeric recon the field is not visible even when the column is in view. I have to edit and move the cursor to the rhs to view the entry

When you are in Full Screen at a Ledger card, lock 2 columns. Then you will see the full reconcile column.June 7, 2004 at 9:58 am #12581
Does that mean you cannot resize to see the whole width on the screen?

It is possible to see the whole screen (such as a report) – providing your video hardware will support it. The command must be run from the dos prompt box.
c:nvnvc /? will show the command line options
if your hardware will support it, then the command line is:
c:nvnvc c:mybooksdirectory /H:42 /W:132 /EDITRT /COLOR
Most of the video hardware will support 50 lines, but has difficulties with the 132 columns wide. You will have to test – to find what exactly will work with your computer.
I hope this helps.

I tried David’s suggestion on one of my computers and it did not work, but you may have better success depending upon your video card.
However, I do not believe you will be able to see ALL seven columns of a Ledger in NV at one time. The best you can do is set the #columns to see the areas you need at a particular time.

The type does get a little bit small !! But for it to work, it really is a very hardware dependant solution. And actually worked well with all the EGA Monitors – but . . . .
With some of the Matrox Video cards, I’ve had good luck and can see all the 7 columns (132 chars wide) of a report or a notes view. But finding the right card is no longer so simple. I still have an older Matrox G2 Card which supports EGA fonts, from an external load. But this card has only 16mb on board, and my newer card has 128. Needless to say, which one is much more fast !!

Thanks Henry and David
Initial attempt at Davids suggestion did not work.
I will go back to column shifting!

Yeah ! its a real dance to make it work. To the point, I don’t bother trying anymore with new video cards. But you may want to try using the “Shell Feature”
Options -> Screen Size -> 43/50 Line Display
Which will help with some extra readability.
Needless to say, some input from Bob would be nice?
