System Customization

The following DataVeil system customizations can be defined:

Font Size

Generally the default font size displayed by the DataVeil GUI is acceptable.

However, with the advent of very high-resolution monitors such as 4K, sometimes the displayed text is too small for comfortable reading by some users.

To change the default DataVeil GUI font size:

Open the file etc/dataveil.conf in the DataVeil software folder.

Locate the default_options setting and include the --fontsize <size> parameter where size is the desired font point size.

For example, to set the default font size as 16 pt, add the --fontsize parameter at the end of the existing default_options value string so that it would would look something like:

default_options=" ...many other settings... --branding dataveil --fontsize 16"

Java JDK Home

A default DataVeil installation shall attempt to find the default Java JDK installed on the operating system.

It may be preferable to explicitly specify a JDK for reasons such as:

In some environments DataVeil may report 'Java not found' when seeking the default JDK location.

You may wish to use a different version of JDK for DataVeil than the default JDK that is installed on your system.

To explicitly specify the Java JDK location:

Open the file etc/dataveil.conf in the DataVeil software folder.

Specify the jdkhome setting with the path to the installed Java JDK.

For example, to use the JDK that is located in the folder C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_221, the jdkhome setting would look like:

jdkhome="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_221"
