Miscellaneous options

The following options are available through the Options menu.

URL conversion

If you program with ASP.NET, your .sln solution files are likely to contain web-style HTTP references. Since Project Analyzer has no HTTP retrieval capabilities, it may ask you to locate your web project via in a local directory. Every time you locate a project file, Project Analyzer stores the URL associated with the directory so that you don't have to locate the file again and again.

The URL conversion dialog lets you manage these settings. You can remove old URLs and change URLs that have been relocated on the local host. You don't need to add new conversions since this is done automatically when opening new .sln files.


The Hotkey option lets you define a key combination to bring up Project Analyzer from the background. Keep Project Analyzer open in the background while working on your project; bring it back by pressing this hotkey.

Font options

The Font options dialog lets you select the fonts Project Analyzer uses on the screen and in its output.

Code (hypertext)
This is the source code font. It is used in the hypertext panel. The same font is used for source code in Copy to Clipboard, Export as RTF and HTML and Project Printer. You can use either a fixed-width or a proportional font.
Default: Courier New
Code (dialogs)
This is the font for Project Analyzer dialogs. It appears in fields and lists where things like variable and class names are being shown. A proportional font is recommended.
Default: Arial
Code (print & PDF)
This is the font for source code print-outs and Export code as PDF. A small proportional font is recommended in other to avoid excessive wrapping of long lines.

Default: Courier New
Report proportional
This is the variable pitch font for reports. It is used for body text in printed and PDF reports. In other report types, you can see it in headings. The size depends on the size of Report fixed.
Default: Arial

Exception for Japanese users: The default fonts are Japanese fonts MS Gothic and MS PGothic.

Script. If international characters (other than plain ASCII A-Z) appear incorrectly, remember to select the correct Script for the font. Each font supports a limited number of scripts. The possible scripts are: Arabic, Baltic, Central European, Chinese (BIG5, GB2312), Cyrillic, Greek, Hangul, Hangul (Johab), Hebrew, Japanese, Other, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese and Western. If international characters still appear incorrectly, try changing the Default source codepage in the General options dialog. Note that some Project Analyzer features have limited support for foreign characters that do not appear in the codepage your Windows is currently running on.

HTML reports are not affected by these font settings. For HTML reports, use the HTML options dialog.

Hypertext options

The Hypertext options dialog lets you select the colors for source code display. These options also set the colors used in print-outs, code export and Project Printer.

To revert back to original color, select the color and press Default.
