It is a given that when you update KLAS, any personalized configuration settings are reset. While this is a first-world problem that all AT users encounter, it is a problem none the less. Do you have any idea what the frequency of the updates will be?

The frequency of updates should be every two weeks, which we know is very frequent to have to reset all of your personalized configurations... but I have good news! The 7.7.30 update that went into general release today supports a user.ini file where you can put your font configurations. This file will never be over-written, and will apply to any database you use (Training and Live).

You can set this up yourself as follows, but please do not hesitate to get our help with it! We're glad to work with anyone who needs it to get this in place.

Create user.ini using a text editor such as notepad, with the contents:
DefaultFont=Tahoe, size=10
DefaultFixedFont=Lucida Console, size=10
TabHeaderFont=Comic Sans MS, size=10, weight=bold
(TabHeaderFont corresponds to font4 in the klas.ini file.)
The faces, sizes, and weight can be adjusted the same as for klas.ini, they're just in their own file now without all the other "stuff."

Place the file in: C:\Users\[Windows Username]\Klas\Config
You will need to create the Klas folder and the Config folder in your user folder.

Once this file is in place, KLAS should load up with these settings the next time you start it. If not, reboot and try again.

Hopefully this is helpful for you!
