I found recently that Xft support under OpenMotif 2.3.3 was added to nedit HEAD branch. However, I didn't see any difference for nedit before and after applying this patch. So my questions are:

1) Is there any special parameter should I run with nedit to enable this support?
2) Can I select xft fonts via "preferences->text font" in nedit?

My system is Ubuntu 13.04 (beta2) X86_64.

Thanks.

    It seems there is a way to use xft font for menu, e.g.,

    nedit -xrm "*renderTable: rt" -xrm "*rt*fontType: FONT_IS_XFT" -xrm "*rt*fontName: Sans" -xrm "*rt*fontSize: 10"

    but not for the text area.
