Bug Description

It's not a bug, but actually a suggestion.
Is it possible (and relatively easy) to add the possibility to change the font type and size in RNB? Will it work both in Linux and Windows?
It's rather uncomfortable to dig through the gtkrc file in order to choose your own ones.

The font size can be set in the preferences. The font style will
probably be adjustable in future versions.

Excuse me for not noticing this.
Thanks for paying attention to this rather weird ticket. :)

Hear, hear! :) It would be nice to be able to use a "slashed-zero" font, for instance.

This font issue can really mess up text written in Vietnamese and possibly many other scripts out there that has characters not included in the default selection of font. Currently I'm changing the font preference by editing the executable directly but obviously a setting would be much more convenient. :)

summary: - Add the possibility to change font type and size for editor mode
+ Add the possibility to change the font type in edit mode

what baffles me is that the font in edit is not that in preview ... so that I can read the Japanese only in edit mode ... and the tags which ar kanji are worse as they are empty rectrangles in the Tag Cloud and only visible above it when selected "blindly" from the cloud.

The font for both edit and preview mode can now be set in the preferences (code only available in trunk, not released yet).

It would be great if you could test the new feature. Grab the newest development code (, run RedNotebook and change the edit font in the preferences. Does it work as expected? If it does, I can release the new version.

Subject: Vermont?

The university's findings stated that the professor created a hostile work environment on two separate counts- that his relationship was so obvious/awkard for others and that lab members not in the relationship had a disadvantage and also that he created an over-sexualized environment that was particularly hostile to women.
