Unity Options for Participants
November 12, 2012 (published)
The OPTIONS menu has three selections:


The font size and font type used to render most of the text within the Unity windows can be set from the FONTS dialog. Invoke the FONTS dialog by selecting FONTS from the Unity OPTIONS menu.

Select the desired font size from the Font Size: pull-down menu and the desired font style from the Font Style: pull-down menu. A sample of the specified font style and size will be displayed within the Preview: window.
  • To apply the selected font settings to the Unity window, select OK.
  • To return to the default font settings (Font Style: Arial, Font Size: 12 point), select DEFAULT.
  • To exit the FONT dialog without changing the Unity font settings, select CANCEL.
Note that each person controls only the display on his or her monitor. When selecting a font size, remember that a larger font will provide a clearer view, but will be unable to display as much text as a smaller font size.

Invoke the SETTINGS dialog by selecting SETTINGS from the Unity OPTIONS menu.

For participants, the only setting available is:

  • Enable private chat blinking
    Check the Enable private blinking box to receive notification via a blinking title bar when you receive a new PRIVATE CHAT message in a window that is not currently the active window within Unity. The blink stops when you activate that PRIVATE CHAT window by selecting it.
