NUTS Help

Fonts

The fonts used within NUTS can be set by the user either within the NUTS program or in the NUTS.INI file. If set in the NUTS.INI file, the selected fonts will be implemented each time NUTS is run. The font can be set independently for each use of text within NUTS: the axis label, the command line at the bottom of the screen, the parameters printed on the bottom of plots, the clipboard display on the screen, integral values and peak labels.

Within NUTS, fonts can be set by choosing Set Fonts from the Edit menu. A sub-menu allows selection of the text whose font is to be changed, and a typical Windows font dialog box is displayed. The font choices are all scalable fonts which are available on both the screen and printer, to make the operation as WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) as possible. In practice, font sizes of 8-10 are recommended for best visibility. For the clipboard display (see CB command) of peak lists or integral lists, a fixed-space font such as Courier is recommended so that the columns line up. Note that the amount of space taken up by the clipboard display is not the same on the screen and on plots, so it is best to test the font choice by printing.

The font for each type of text can also be set using the following 2-letter commands from the keyboard, by-passing the menus:

FA Select font parameters for axis.
FC Select font parameters for clipboard display using CB.
FI Select font parameters for integral labels.
FJ Select font parameters for the molefile subroutine and the 2D compare utility.
FL Select font parameters for command line.
FM Select font parameters for parameters printed on plots.
FH Select font parameters for horizontal peak labels.
FV Select font parameters for vertical peak labels.

FA — Set axis font

Brings up a Windows font dialog box allowing selection of font parameters for the axis label. This command is also available by choosing Set Fonts from the Edit menu. The font choices are all scalable fonts which are available on both the screen and printer, to make the operation as WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) as possible. In practice, font sizes of 8-10 are suggested for best visibility. The text may look slightly different when printed, so it is best to test the choice of font by printing.

FM — Set font for parameter list on plots

Brings up a Windows font dialog box allowing selection of font parameters for the list of spectral parameters printed on the bottom of plots. This command is also available by choosing Set Fonts from the Edit menu. In practice, font sizes of 8-10 are suggested for best visibility. It is best to test the choice of font by printing.

The user can choose whether or not spectral parameters should be printed on plots by choosing Page Setup from the File menu. This can also be set in the NUTS.INI file. An alternative to printing the parameters on the bottom of plots is to use the LP command to place the parameters into the Windows clipboard and then use CB to display the contents of the clipboard on the plot.

FC — Set font for clipboard display

Brings up a Windows font dialog box allowing selection of font parameters for text display using the CB command. This command is also available by choosing Set Fonts from the Edit menu. The font choices are all scalable fonts which are available on both the screen and printer, to make the operation as WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) as possible. In practice, font sizes of 8-10 are suggested for best visibility. For display of peak lists or integral lists, a fixed-space font such as Courier is recommended so that the columns line up. Note that the amount of space taken up by the clipboard display is not the same on the screen and on plots, so it is best to test the font choice by printing.

FI — Set font for Integral labels

Brings up a Windows font dialog box allowing selection of font parameters for labels on integral segments.  This command is also available by choosing Set Fonts from the Edit menu. The font choices are all scalable fonts which are available on both the screen and printer, to make the operation as WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) as possible. In practice, font sizes of 8-10 are suggested for best visibility. The text may look slightly different when printed, so it is best to test the choice of font by printing.

With addition of the option to display integral labels vertically (Dec 2002), the fonts for horizontal and vertical integral labels are set independently.  This means the FI command displays the font dialog box twice, for the 2 different orientations.

FL — Set font for command line

Brings up a Windows font dialog box allowing selection of font parameters for the command line at the bottom of the screen. This command is also available by choosing Set Fonts from the Edit menu. In practice, a font size of about 10 is suggested for best visibility.

FH — Set font for horizontal peak labels

Brings up a Windows font dialog box allowing selection of font parameters for the chemical shift labels displayed above peaks. Each label can be oriented either horizontally or vertically. The labels are toggled on and off by typing Ctrl-P. This command is also available by choosing Set Fonts from the Edit menu. A font size of 8 is suggested. It is best to test the choice of font by printing because appearance on the screen and plots will usually differ.

FV — Set font for vertical peak labels

Brings up a Windows font dialog box allowing selection of font parameters for the chemical shift labels displayed above peaks. Each label can be oriented either horizontally or vertically. The labels are toggled on and off by typing Ctrl-P. This command is also available by choosing Set Fonts from the Edit menu. A font size of 8 is suggested. It is best to test the choice of font by printing because appearance on the screen and plots will usually differ.
