View Full Version : Strange font in Editor Pane

I installed the Propeller software on my computer. Everything seems to work accordingly except that the font in the Editor Pane is compressed (see screen shot attachment). Is there a way to change the font, or do you think the problem is with the computer? I'm using an IBM with Windows XP Professional, version 2002.

As a side note, I installed the Stamp software to see if I would have the same font problem. No issues with the Stamp software.

Try changing the size of the font and see if that helps... (I think mouse scroll up/down is the shortcut for that...)

look here, this seems to address the same problem:

The solution was to set the regional font to english, I guess.
Also you should check, if the "propeller.ttf" font is installed in your systems font directory.
Maybe you are using font managing software (like linotype font manager)?

Well, I checked the regional settings as suggested, clicked the pull-down menu to see all the options, decided it was set correctly, and closed all the windows without changing a thing. I then reopened the Propeller software, and the font was correct. Very strange, but it fixed the problem. Thanks!
