Code Editor Font

Post by PJMiller » Sun May 28, 2017 11:32 am

In Open Type Designer the font used in the code editor is somewhat small on a high DPI screen.

Is there a way of setting the size and/or font used ? I have had a quick look in the options and nothing stood out.

If there isn't a way of setting the font of the code editior then there ought to be.

Click the gear-wheels icon at top right of the Code Editor dialogue to set the Code Editor options.

Thanks.

I thought there was a way but I must have missed the icon.

I missed it as well until BP pointed it out to me once.

The defaults are not practical. This looks like a bug. FontCreator 10.1 suffers from the same issue.

This is indeed a bug. It will be fixed with the next upcoming release.
