Font Administrator User's Guide

Setting the Default Sample Text

The default sample text is automatically displayed when you select a font in the main window or the Install dialog. For a picture and description of the main window, see Font Administrator Main Window. For a picture and description of the Install dialog, see To Install Fonts.

    To set the default sample text:

  1. Select Set Sample Text from the Options menu.

    Image shows how to set default text.
  2. On the Set Sample Text dialog, click in the text box and type the desired text.

  3. Click OK or Apply to save the sample text setting.

Note –

Because the default sample text is a user preference stored in the user's home directory, it cannot be set for the root user, who has no home directory. To view sample text, the root user types in the sample text display area.
