    After some help at the Conference in Dusseldorf, I changed to studio 10.2 completely. After working for 2 weeks some questions arise.

    1. Changing the font in classes works fine in menu “view”->”Fonts…”. Is there a possibility to save the bigger fonts in my Studio browser? Save windows setup does not work.

    2. In Omnis studio 6 in a long loop I could push “break”-button to pause at the line of that moment. In Omnis 10.2 it did not work anymore. Any substitute key for that in Windows?

    3. In the “Compare classes” system it always crashes at a specific class.

    ”Error when executing method V4COMPARE.oCompare/compareProperties Attempt to assign binary to character”

    Any idea?

    And is this V4COMPARE an LBS or else that I can edit. I’d like to disregard the properties left, top, width and height.

    Hi Martin,

    changing the font size can also be done using Cmd/Ctr.+ in the IDE. When you then save the windows setup it should remember the new font size.

    Here are the keyboard shortcuts:

    I think what you are looking for might be the Debugger interrupt which is Alt-I on Windows and Cmd-Option-I on macOS.

    You can change this in the $keys property of your Omnis. Click on the root level in the tree list of the class browser – then onto the Prefs link. That opens the property manager and shows all the properties of your Omnis environment. Then search for “keys”.

    Regarding the crashes you should contact Omnis support and send them your library together with a description how to reproduce the problem.

    Best regards,

    Hi Andreas,

    For the font. I’m sorry but no. Not for windows.

    Alt-I works. Thanks

    And for the compare. I will send one.

    Hi Martin,

    We just have tested with the latest release (10.2 build 31315) on Windows. It does work after doing a “save window setup”.

    Best regards,

    Alternatively there is a “Fonts” item in the menu that pops up when you click on “view” in the toolbar. You can also change your font size there.
