Full description and shots here
I use Source Code Pro as my dev font. It comes in a load of styles. Extra Light, Light, Normal etc etc.
I choose Regular. XS4.0.1 used to display Regular.
Now (4.0.2, Mono3), it picks the first one on the list - which is ultralight. Not overly readable, but not a show stopper either.
See screenshots in the forum post
REGRESSION. I assume it's a GTK issue?
But you can pick the regular font style and the editor takes that ?
I used to be able to.
I could pick any font face + style and it'd take it (mono 2.11.x + XS 4.0.1)
Now, I can pick any, but it only ever uses the first one (Ultralight) in the editor. If I pick any others, it just uses Ultralight (the first one in the list)
XS 4.0.1 did not run on Mono 2.11.x, do you mean 2.10.11?
Do you have the problem if you run XS 4.0.2 on Mono 2.10.11?
how do I do this? apparently, I still have them installed - is there a commandline incantation to run it?
Change the /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/Current symlink to point to /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/2.10.11
mhutch: it's the font picker dialog - it has always the problem.
Thanks. Just tried it. Confirmed that I was running in 2.10.11 in the about
Still shows the Ultralight style regardless of what I pick.Get the Face right,
but not the Style. Except for italic.
Stranger, using the default font (Menlo)
I pick -> it shows:
Menlo Regular -> Menlo Regular
Menlo Italic -> Menlo Italic
Menlo Bold -> Menlo Regular
Menlo Bold Italic -> Menlo Italic
This is the same for Helvetica Neue and any others I try.
Note that the list above is in the order they appear in dialog. The order
Oh, and the small line of text at the bottom of the font picker shows it correctly. Its just the editor window which is wrong.
It's not a very big bug btw. it's always possible to select the regular font and it's only affecting some fonts like the Source Code Pro.
btw. I wouldn't recommend it as source code font - it's the first non mono spaced 'source code' font I've seen. Some features are built for mono spaced fonts.
So far, it's not allowing me to select a regular style - only the first style, which in this case isn't regular.
I will go back to Menlo I think, but I use Source Code Pro everywhere else at the moment - according to Adobe (who made is), it is monospace:
Or am I missing something here?
Mike, what exactly is the problem with the chooser? Is GTK+ giving is back an incorrect font string or something?
The font style sorting should always sort regular at the 1st variant.
Atm when selecting source sans pro the wrong variant is choosen - by fixing the sorting in the font chooser that wont happen.
If it's any help, I just upgraded to the stable release (4.0.2 and 2.10.12?) and I have the super-light font. Going to switch back to menlo....
Just wanted to add that if you uninstall the variations of the Source Code Pro Font that appear in the list *before* "Regular" (which are Extra Light, Light, etc.) then with "Regular" listed first in the dialog it will work. (See bug 11265)
Source Code Pro is monospaced. However, it can be confused with it's non-monospaced parent font "Source Sans Pro" which is not monospaced.
I've the same problem using Xamarin Studio 4.0.4 and Mono 2.10.12.
Using MonoDevelop 3.1.1 with Mono 2.10.12 displays the selected font correctly.
