I am new to RM and this question has probably been asked before but I could not find it.

The fonts used on the RM pages look like an old dot matrix printer.

Also the color that RM use for the pages is very hard on my eyes and I want to change it.

I have looked through the program and can't find a way to change this. Is it possible to change it?

I find that these two things makes me not to want to use this program.

Is there anything that I can change?

Go to Tools>Program Options>Display and you can change the color and fonts there.

 

On the Mac version you need to select a Windows font (not an Apple font) because you are using a Windows program. The Apple fonts are going to be listed at the top, but all of the compatible TT or MS fonts are going to be farther down in the list. Arial, MS Shell Dlg, or News Times Roman at 14 point seem to work the best. You can also try these fonts in bold.

Did you mean Times New Roman?

 

Helvetica 16 is a good choice versus arial, the microsoft one and times nr.

 

Nothing will really look good since this is a windows xp program.
