Excellent work! What does the other editor do? Is it just an older version that’s compatible with the older hmi files?

I found an HMI file I really like but I would like to change the fonts. The issue I'm having is when in the Nextion editor, I can't seem to find the window on the lower left side of the screen which lists the existing fonts. In the menu there is the font editor to create new fonts and I can click on the id number of an existing item in the editor which will bring up the id of the item I whish to change, but I have no way of knowing the previous font size without experimentation and just selecting different sizes and trying them out. Was wondering if anyone knew why I couldn't pull up the font window for the existing fonts. I've tried going into the menu's and seeing if there were a window that was just not selected but I don't think that is the case. Thanks.

Oh, now I see. When I first open the editor I see them flash up real quick for about a second or two but then when it loads they disappear. Must have something to do with my screen resolution or something. I'll check it out. Thanks.

Hello, looking for some direction. My screen looks exactly like the one pictured and I have changed a few fonts sizes and styles and did not work for me also cant find much on the internet on this topic. I did read something on the height and width (X, Y, H, W) any info will be appreciated.

Thanks

Does anyone have a copy of the first post? It seems the forum is only showing me replies to it so I can't see the actual instructions everyone is thanking someone for.
