I would to like to ask to be configurable option to
choose the font of the editor.
I'm asking that because I can't see chinese
(traditional chinese) with the current Font.

You should be able to see it. Here is the answer I gave in
The plugin does not limit the character sets you want to
use. You have to make sure your OS supports Traditional
Chinese (can you use it in other software?). Also, make
sure the character set (text file encoding) for your
properties file supports Traditional Chinese. I have been
able to test it myself with Japanese characters. If you
send me Chinese content, I may also test it.

My files are in UTF-8, they are been writen ok (my program
that is using chinese is displaying the characters ok)
I can see chinese characters on my program when using "Arial
Unicode MS" as font (new Font("Arial Unicode MS", Font.BOLD,
The only place that I have this problem is on the resource
I'm sending the .properties attached..

I installed chinesse support in my windows and now I can see
the chinese characters
Isn't there a way to use java.awt.Font on the pluggin? It
will avoid this installation and you could use something like
GraphicsEnvironment ge =
Font fonts = ge.getAllFonts();
What do you think about it?
Thanks for the file, I will investigate whenever I can and I
will get back to you.
I can reproduce the behaviour and see why such a feature
could be useful. I will try to implement in a next release.
In the meantime, if you find a way to change the default
font for text boxes, please post it here.
I just installed East Asian languages support on my winXP
workstation (from Control Panel/Regional and Language
Options) and tried your file sample again. I can now see
the chinese characters perfectlly! It works for me with
Eclipse default font for text boxes. I do not understand why
it does not work for you. I will still keep your feature
request since I still think it may be nice to be able to
change the fonts, regarless of language.
I do can see after install East Asian Language suport, but I
do can see on my program without install it (using
new Font("Arial Unicode MS",Font.BOLD,11)) ). It would be
better if it wasn't necessary to install it, since it is not
required for Java applications (using that font).
I will try to add font support in a next release.
A solution has been added to CVS. Will be part of next release.
You can choose the default font of your editor in 0.8.0.
If that font cannot display the characters in your current value, the editor searches for a font on your workstation, which can.
