Colors, line styles and font options for pattern graphics

On this page of the "Colors and line styles" dialog (which can be opened using the corresponding button in the toolbar at the top of the main window), you can set the colors of all kinds of graphical elements in the diffraction pattern, like background color, border line, grid color etc., as well as the font style and size for the texts and numbers in the pattern graphics.

For most graphical elements, the current color is displayed in a corresponding box. By clicking on this color box you can open a color selection dialog where you can select/define a new color for the corresponding graphical element.

In many cases, it is not only possible to define the color but also the line style and width of the corresponding graphical element. The current line style is displayed to the right of the corresponding color box. If you press on the small arrow on its right-hand side, you will get a list of available line styles from which you can also select the new line style.
To the right of the line style box, you can enter or adjust the corresponding line width (given in points). Either use the "up" and "down" array buttons to modify the line width, or enter a new value directly.

In addition to the colors and line styles, you can define the font style and size for all texts and numbers in the diffraction pattern, simply by clicking the on the arrows on the right-hand side of the corresponding selection boxes.

The background control point size can be adjusted on the "Graphics" page of the "Options" dialog, just like the size of the pearls for the vertical line cursor ("string of pearls").

Default settings

If you mark the "Save as defaults" checkbox at the bottom of the dialog before you close it by clicking "OK", the current settings will be stored in the registry so that they are restored next time your start Match!. You can also save the current settings explicitly by selecting the corresponding command in the "Options" menu. This is generally appropriate if you changed some options using toolbar buttons instead of the "Options" dialog.

Factory settings

If you are in doubt whether your default settings are still appropriate, you can restore the original (Crystal Impact) settings using the "Restore factory settings" command in the "Options" menu.
