What font type and screen resolution do you use?


I am getting ready to re-design our primary QVW, that I inherited, and wanted to know the thoughts of the Q Community users:

We use an Access Point and we also export data ( via Images ) to Nprinting that we typically save to a PDF.  Preference for font uses for web apps differs greatly from what will print well.

We are currently using Arial for objects we know we will print and Tahoma as a general font for Web viewing.

Our current resolution is 1024 x 768 for our app, but we are considering moving to 1280 x 1024.  Statistics on the web suggest that 95 % of the people on the Internet use at least 1280 x 1024.

  • What is the default font type you use for straight tables, charts and caption headers?
  • What is the screen resolution that you have standardized on when designing a new QVW?

If you don't mind, please explain why you made your decisions.  Hoping to get quite a few responses, so please let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Basically you need to set your resolution as required in Qlikview Desktop , and after applying to sheet , you can decide how your font should look like .

And caption should be summation of your resolution of every object.

I appreciate you taking a moment to reply.  I get how to set my resolution and my font.  My intent was to learn what other people are doing for resolution and font.  I understand that I should be polling my end users to learn their wishes, I was trying to learn what other developers are doing so that I can make recommendation of best practices.
