The font in the PostView can be adjusted using the controls (Automatic Font Scaling/Scale Factor) on the Post View Legend Text tab.

Dear Jim,

Not progress here, is not a problem related with font size, but font quality.

I do not see the way to change the font type used for postprocessing in order to see if using another font it will improve the font quality, I am searching under CUSTOMER DEFAULTS, but the option is not available, any suggestion? - thanks!.

Dear Blas,

 

the problem you described also occurs in my software environment but in another configuration.

I use Windows7-64bit with NX 8.5.2 and the post processing fonts are well suited.

 

Now after installing NX 10 at the same Windows the font of text in post processing header lines degrade to something with missing pixels as you pictured. It looks like "using the wrong antialiasing - technique" when plotting the letters.

 

I am also very interested in a solution of this problem.

 

Greetings, Michael

The actual font used for the Post View legend text can be modified on the View, Visualization, Preferences dialog under Session Settings:

Hi JimB,

thank your for answering.

The location of font setting and changing it is very interesting an sometime usefull, but it does not solve my problem.

After changing my visualization font the effect of degradation only changes its appearance in the other font style.

 

Appearance in NX8.5.2 with Arial:

Appearance in NX10 witrh Arial:

Appearance in NX10 with Times:

Appearance in NX8.5.2 with Times:

You see, same problem only in another style.

 

Could there be other reasons? - Any Suggestions? - May be graphical adapter?

 

Greetings, Michael

You can try turning off Automatic Scaling on the PostView Legend Text tab. If you can't obtain satisfactory results, please report the probelm via GTAC so that it can be tracked.

Hello JimB,

 

thank you for the suggestion but it does not work. I will report it to GTAC as you recommended, except Blas has already a solution or a solution request at GTAC.

 

@Blas: Did you already ask for help at GTAC?

 

I hope, they can cope it.

 

Best wishes, Michael

Hello,

 

I had a similar problem. I don't remember what update it was after which the problem occurred but I found out, that in my case it was the "Line Antialiasing", just like Michael suspected.

 

Line_Antialiasing_on.PNG

"Line Antialiasing" turned on

 

 

Line_Antialiasing_off.PNG

"Line Antialiasing" turned off

 

 

Although the "Line Antialiasing" is then not availible for the lines, which should be the intended use, the font looks OK.

 

Hope that works for you and you can use it as workaround as long as the problem isn't fixed yet.
