Resolved: Cannot change font or font size for Hex View

Post by HSeldon »

Is anyone else having a similar problem, or do I have a system issue?

I am running version 14.61 portable x64 on Windows 10 64-bit
My theme settings are:
Theme: Charcoal Dark Slate.
Program style: Windows 10 Dark
Panel style: VCL Style

I select a different font and size in Options/Fonts and tabs/Hex view, and Apply.
The 'TextEd.ini' file is modified, but remains unchanged. Under 'Hex General', It always shows font as the system font, and the font size is blank.

If I change theme settings to:
Theme: Windows
Program style: Windows

I can change the font, but the font size in INI file remains blank.

I'm not sure what the problem is: that you can't change font for Hex view, or that it is not written into INI file? The latter I haven't checked, my answer to the former is this: well, it's tricky indeed, but doable, you just need to change font family & size in the settings for all languages (i.e. for all highlighters), and then it is used in Hex view. I must assume it is written to INI file (remember, there are two INI files: one with default values, written by installer and another customized by a user), since it is preserved after program restart.

Thank you pjj! I did not have 'All Languages' selected.
I keep forgetting that it defaults to current highlighter in settings.

You're very welcome!

BTW I dare say it needs better UX, like hiding these do-nothing inputs when a certain highlighter -- instead of All Languages -- is set. Or better yet: moving it to another section, so it's always a setting for all highlighters.

I agree. In my case, a better memory would also help.
