Window Font and Size won't hold default pref (4 posts)

    I'm getting inconsistent success with setting the default Font and Size for the file list window view. I go to View>Set Font and Size, and pick a font then check 'Make these settings default'. It seems to work OK if I pick a 'standard' font like Helvetica or Times - quit/relaunch of Fetch still maintains that font preference. But, if I choose something less common like Arial Narrow or Myriad Pro Cond the font preference gets lost after quitting Fetch - relaunching Fetch ends up with file list font reverting back to Lucida Grande 12pt.

    Is this just a bug or is the font view preference limited to only certain types of font? Or, is there some other way to set the default font?

    Running MacOSX 10.6.6, Fetch 5.6.

    Thanks, - Den.

    Hi Den,

    We've looked into this and confirmed the problem where the transfer window does not remember the default font when Arial Narrow and other fonts are selected.

    Unfortunately, there isn't a workaround at this time (other than sticking with "standard" fonts, most of which do not have the problem as you note), but we will look into fixing it in a future release of Fetch.

    I'm sorry we don't have a solution for you right now.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions,
