#1059 Wrong font dialog box opening through the view menu


When you attempt to change the font by clicking

view->(select font)

on Windows 8 (64bit) running Geany 1.24 some strange non-gtk looking font selection dialog opens. It looks much worse than the dialog that opens through


and clicking the font button. I've attached an image of both font selection boxes. The one on the left is created by going through the preference editor, while the one on the right is created by going through

view->(select font)

    You noted on IRC that the view->select font didn't obey the use_windows_dialogs setting, thats the actual bug isn't it?

    BTW, did you try shutdown and restart Geany after changing the setting.

    Well neither of them changed after checking the box and then restarting, just the open/save dialogs changed. And I made sure to restart Geany after every change to the preferences.
