Hi,

 

I updated to Version 12.0.1 and it seems that I can not select font any more.

 

The font displayed seems to be a small size courier, not at all convenient.

 

I have tried Options -> Font settings but no effect.

 

Any suggestions?

 

My preference would be Arial 12pt.

 

Greetings

The man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers is fortunate, because his delight is in the law of Jehovah and on his law he meditates day and night.

It seems nothing helps.

 

Deinstalled e-Sword, deleted directory, cleaned registry, reinstalled.

 

No change and strangely enough e-Sword remembered the font-selection but did not use it.

 

There must be some hidden files somwhere.

Based on the shape of the big J in the screenshot is the font not Arial and based on the monospace is it a kind of system-font.

Have you the same problem with your internet browser?

You are right it is not Arial, it looks more like Courier. The displayed font is not proportional and can not be changed.

When trying to change the size only the distance between the lines changes, not the size of the letters.

The problem is only affecting e-Sword. Not any other program.

By the way, I do not necessary need Arial the standard Verdana is also okay if I could change to that. But as explained, I can select any font in the font dialog window.

It displays as selected but nothing changes. The problem began yesterday without any action from my side.

Just want to report my findings and actions.

When I logged in as another user the fontsetting worked so obviously something happened to my user profile.

Searched long but could not find what it was so I deleted my user profile including all data. Restarted the computer and made a new user profile.

In this new profile the font setting works.

It is a drastic measure and a lot of settings etc. have to be made again. But at least e-Sword has a good font again.

Strange that no other programs were affected.
