      Hi everyone.


      I am trying to increase the font size of the legend in the Ansys Workbench Mechanical. What is the solution for this? 


      Any help is appreciated.


      Thanks in advance.

      Do you only need the font larger when doing a screen grab to paste the plot with legend into a report or presentation?


      If so, you can use the Image to File button.



       


      Then type a Font Magnification Factor. I typed in a 4 instead of a 1.



      You can also check to use a White Background here.

      Hi Muhammad,


      You can also write a simple macro such as:



      DS.Graphics.SetFontStyle( 0, 'Arial', 0, 0, 30, 0, 0 );


      DS.Graphics.SetFontStyle( 2, 'Arial', 0, 0, 30, 0, 0 );


      DS.Graphics.Redraw(1);



      Note that the default font size is 16 and here we are changing it to 30 using index 2.


      Lastly, You need to save this macro as a file named “SampleFont.js” in a convenient location. Then from within Mechanical: Tools> Run Macro > SampleFont.js.


      Hope this helps.


      Regards,


      Sandeep
