#910 can't change fonts

No matter what size I make the screen to adjust font size, I can't get to the radio button to click OK and change it. I can see the button as I resize the window, but as soon as I let go of the window edge, the interior screens resize, and I can't see anything below the "quick brown fox" dialog. I saw that there were some problems in 2004, but they say that they were fixed. I can barely see the size 10 fonts. I tried 3 different versions of Dr. Java, r 5425.jar 5425.exe and r5387 stable.exe I run windows 7 professional and jdk 6.0_25

I tried it on the win xp computer with no jdk and jre 6_21 and it works fine...Any ideas?

    I was able to reproduce this, which will allow me to work on a fix.

    In the meantime, you can use this work-around:
    1. Select whatever font you want.
    2. Select the desired value in the size column.
    3. Press Tab once.
    4. Press Space once.
    5. The dialog will close with the selected values.

    I have identified the problem. This dialog doesn't use a layout manager, instead it resizes the components manually. We should use something like GridBagLayout.

    Fixed as of revision 5433.
    Migrated to GridBagLayout, tested on Windows XP and 7.
