How can I match Windows font sizes and SLCD font sizes for downloadable fonts?

Use Photoshop or the open source equivalent GIMP to design a user interface screen on a PC. It can be hard to match the embedded fonts on the SLCD family of controllers with Windows fonts. If you need an exact match you must do two things:

  1. Set image scaling in the Windows design program to 96 dpi (establish the size/scale), and;
  2. Use a Reach Technology generated downloadable font of the same font name and point size. Find fonts.

If you need fonts not shown, please contact Reach Technical Support and specify the Windows font name, the size in points, and the character set (either ISO 8859-1 or a Unicode subset). See the Fonts for Embedded Touch Screen Development for a comprehensive explanation of working with fonts.
