names on table layout
« on: October 21, 2008, 10:13:06 AM »
How do I get last names only appear on the table layouts (with the image of the racetrack tables)? Also some of the names appear cutoff when too long. Is there anyway to reduce the text size on the table layout. Sorry for the sketchy info. I'm running out the door. If necessary I will be more specific later.

Thanks,

d.

You will need to open and make changes in the .xml file you are using.

Also, to see only last names, you'll need to change the Name Format preference.  Settings window -> Preferences tab -> Name Format (button on the left).

Thanks guys. Appreciate the response and I'm pretty sure this will work for me. I'm not sure I'm going to to any thing with it, but how would I get to the .xml file to change the size of the text for the names.

Once again, Corey - great software.

Here's a snippet from "RacetrackTenSeatTableBlueprintLarge.xml" included with the software:

<table>
  <image>
    <path>images/RacetrackTenSeatTableLarge.gif</path>
    <size width="770" height="350" />
  </image>
  <labels>
    <font name="Tahoma" size="15" bold="true" italic="true" shadow="true" />
    <text color="white" highlightColor="white" highlightBackgroundColor="blue" />
    <size width="200" height="26" />
    ...

The <size> element underneath the <labels> element defines the default size for all labels.  Change the width attribute.
