I have noticed that certain font styles are no longer changeable since updating to version 6.2 of Notepad++.
I have noticed that if I used other themes, such as Solarized, I am able to change the style to italic without any issue, but for the default style it does not appear to be changeable.
Please could someone inform me if there is a workaround, or an XML change I could make?
I have a similar problem. I cannot even change my font. I can change it for the current session but if I close Notepad++ and reopen, it chooses the font I had before, not the new one.
Oh I have found a workaround. Close N++ then open it as an administrator. You should be able to make your changes, and it saves it next time you open N++
this should be fixed in v 6.2.1.
