generative modeling for Rhino
do you know how to set up the text size in grasshopper, to change the size of the text tag text?
would be great if you could help me!
Tag3d has a size input but will be displayed in 3d (not always perpendicular to screen).
yeah i know...
but i would like to have this perpendicular view.
Not that I'm aware of. Might be a limitation of the Rhino viewport. As far as I know there is no way to adjust the size and style of native Rhino text tags.
thank you anyways!
If you open up the File "grasshopper_kernel.xml" in Your settings folder: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Grasshopper
You can search for the entry Text2DTagSize:
#item name="Text2DTagSize" type_name="gh_int32" type_code="3">12#/item>
and change the 12 for 32 for example. Note # replace < for display purposes
Make sure Rhino and Grasshopper aren't open when you make the change otherwise you won't see the desired results.
Nice hack. :D
If it's a global constant, it should be exposed in the preferences somewhere... but we get totally a neccesary content filter instead ;)
David put this entry there just for this purpose. It's only been available since April/May last year.
The Problem you have is existing Tag components already have the size assigned to them you would need to delete them and create new ones after any changes. And if you do this whilst the program is open you get some very funny behaviour.
This is a set once and move on with your life type hack the way things are at the moment.
cant find it...
"It" being the File or the Entry?
Which version of grasshopper are you using?
You won't see it unless you have all the "show hidden files" options in your Windows explorer enabled.
