Font Sizing Explained

 

EasyWorship uses an auto font sizing feature that makes sure that your text always fits the screen. EasyWorship will use the largest size font possible to display your songs and scriptures.  The following information explains how font sizing works in EasyWorship.

 

Desired Font Height Percentage:

EasyWorship sets the maximum size of the font by using the Desired Font Height Percentage to make sure the text doesn't get too large.  The desired font Height Percentage is set for a percentage of the screen size instead of a point font size like most text editing programs.

See: Songs Tab for more info on changing the Desired Font Height Percentage.

 

No Minimum Font Height Percentage:

There is no minimum font size.  When you begin to type text into a slide, the text will appear using the Desired Font Height Percentage. After you reach the maximum number characters that can fit on a line using the Desired Font Height Percentage, EasyWorship will either wrap the text to the next line or, if wrapping is no longer an option, EasyWorship will make the text smaller with the addition of more characters.

 

Example: When you begin to type text into a song, you could be typing at 10%. If you continue to type without creating new slides, EasyWorship will continue to make the text smaller.  The more text there is the smaller the text appears.

 

Text Size Continuity Within a Song:

By default EasyWorship will make all of the text in a song the same size.  In order to accomplish this, EasyWorship looks at the slide with the most text on it to determine the text size of the rest of the slides.  If you put more text on a slide than can fit using the desired font height percentage, EasyWorship will resize the text to fit.  EasyWorship will then use that slide to determine the text size for the rest of the slides.

 

All text in a song is sized by the longest line of text in the entire slide set for that song. In the event that you have a line that is too long, you may break that line into multiple lines by pressing enter where the line wraps.  If you press enter twice it will send the text after the cursor to a new slide.  This, will reduce the amount of text on the slide to allow the text to appear larger.  You will notice that the text in all of the slides will appear larger when that line or slide is split into a new line or slide.

 

Notes

Auto wrapping can be disabled in Live/Options/Songs tab under Advanced.  With auto wrapping turned off, EasyWorship will automatically start resizing the text when you have reached the maximum amount of text that can fit on a line.  You will have to press enter at the end of the line to make sure the text isn't resized until you have reached the maximum amount of text for the slide.

 

Changing Text Size Within A Slide:

You may select part of the text in a slide and increase the text size up to the Desired Font Height Percentage.  EasyWorship may have to reduce the size of the other text in the slide in order for the selected text to appear larger.  The font size in the song editor is a proportional size.  It makes the selected text look larger, by shrinking the size of the other text. If you select the whole slide and try to increase the size, the size will not change.  EasyWorship has already made the text on that slide as large as it can be for that slide.  If this is not the case, you may need to check other slides in the song.  See: Text Size Continuity Within a Song
