chosen font not activated at startup

Post by HughDarwen »

I change the point size to 24 for lecture-room demos, but next time I start up Dbrowser I have to do Tools/Options/Save to get the selected font to show in the lower pane (even though the menu does show the point size to have been remembered).

I note that changing the font doesn't affect the enhanced display in the upper pane. No doubt there's a good reason for that.

I'll fix this in the next update.

Yes, the enhanced output uses an entirely different mechanism from the non-enhanced output and other displays. It's essentially an embedded Web browser that is part of the Java platform libraries. When I first implemented enhanced output, I configured the font size to be changeable, but it had some unpleasant side effects on the formatting. However, I'm going to try an another approach that will hopefully work.
