    Fonts in CDU and RCDU do no match.

    I'm currently working on the 737 simulator at Daniel Webster College. We're
    using the PFC simulator with Project Magenta software. We're having some
    problems with the fonts being about 1-2 points smaller on the co-pilot's CDU
    then on the Pilot's CDU. I've checked the .ini files on both and the font
    and Open GL settings are all the same between the two CDU's. Also the
    screen settings within windows are also the same. This isn't mission critical
    but alot of the instructors and students are noticing it and requesting
    that I fix it, but I've run out of ideas of what it can be.

    Hi,

    if you are using OpenGl, the easiest way to make sure they match is to copu

    the OpenGL section from the CDU to the RCDU... or resize them by changing
    the values there.

    Regards

    Re: Fonts in CDU and RCDU do no match.

    Currently we have the OpenGL option's disabled. I had a chance to take a
    really good look at the problem yesterday and I believe that the problem is a
    result of the CDU refrencing a different font face then the RCDU. They
    both refrence the PMBCDU file in the .ini.

    The reason I believe this is the problem as the capital "i"'s in the CDU look
    "|" with the horizontal bars on the top and bottom missing. In the RCDU
    it looks like "I" with the horizonnal bars on the top and bottom appearing.
    There's also noticeable differences in other characters such as; R, O, and
    W.

    I also found that the CDU is based off of Project Magenta's Build 367, and
    the RCDU based off of your build 77. Is there an actual font file that I can
    copy or is the characteristics of the font refrenced in the program
    itslef?
