Font size in data grid


I navigated to View/Toad Options/Data Grids/Visual.

Within the Styles frame, I selected my Active Style. Under Edit/Simple, I changed my Font Size to 8.

The data in the grid now looks great, except, when I select one cell in that grid, the font increases. It looks like it may be a font size 10 now.

This only happens when a cell is selected. Is there a way to keep the same size regardless of whether a cell is selected?

Thank you!

Hi Dennis,

I just changed the font size (I changed it to 6 so it would be very obvious if something is showing at 10) and the grid font size changed as expected, but then when I selected a cell, the font size did not change.

Which version of Toad are you using? And can you post a screen shot? Maybe I am looking at a different grid.


Thanks John,

We are using Toad

Here is a screen shot showing a selected cell and unselected. (hopefully I uploaded this correctly!)


Oh I see. You have one of the grid styles already applied (Desert, maybe?). Mine was still on "Legacy".

In that case, you'll need to go through the "advanced" grid style editor to set your font size in there too. See how "Selection" and some of the others still looks bigger? Change the font size on those. You won't need to set all of them, just the ones I've marked.

You're awesome!

This has been bugging me for a while now, but never really had time to investigate it.

Thank you!!!
