Specifies the display font in the Design Tool session window. You can use any font, including TrueType fonts. Arial is an example of a TrueType font that is not monospaced, and therefore is not supported by the Design Tool.

By default, the Design Tool uses the r_ansi font. This provides a 24 x 80 display that accurately emulates the terminal.

When you resize the Terminal window, the Design Tool chooses a new font size so the correct number of rows are displayed on the screen. If the Design Tool cannot display the font you have chosen, the default (r_ansi) is displayed instead.

The available fonts can change as you change the model ID in the Session Setup dialog box, because not all model IDs support all fonts.

Note: When you print all or part of a host screen from a terminal session, the font used is the currently configured display font.
