Pinned topic ibm5250 - Larger font sizes sometimes unavailable.

‏2010-11-19T00:15:36Z |
Often, after starting multiple ibm5250 emulator sessions (either directly calling ibm5250 or from the setup5250 program), the larger font sizes become unavailable in the Option->Fonts menu selection.

For example, I recently opened a 5250 emulator and my font was at my preferred 15X28 size, any subsequent sessions I open have the largest font available as 11X19 (the larger font sizes are simply not shown in the menu). This is a problem for me as on larger displays the smaller font sizes are difficult to read.

I've seen this problem many times before but have not been able to find any cause or solution. Sometimes after restarting the X server the larger font sizes suddenly become available again but this doesn't always work. I also know that I've seen this exact same behavior on other client machines here at my workplace.

Does anyone know what may be causing this or have any suggestions?

Running Ubuntu 10.10, i Access for linux version:
Build Date: September 2010 (V7R1 1.0)
Thanks for any advice or suggestions.
Carl.

    Seems like if your emulator screen is maximized, the font option is not available.

      Interesting, as that's not the case for me. Even when maximized I can select any of the available fonts, my problem is that the list of available fonts is sometimes limited to only the very small fonts. I've have also made sure that the emulator is not maximized when this problem occurs and also tried changing the window size to see if the available fonts change without success.
