#76 Font Size is ignored

v1.0 (example)
Interface (47)

When clicking on text within a note, the application does not update the font size selection box to display the actual size of the current text.

Also when the font size is select, it seems to have no effect on the actual text that is then typed into the document.

Running v 1.1 on Ubuntu 11.10 x32.

    Both of these are known issues and deal with the fact that there is no easy way for me to tell what font is currently in use where the cursor is position.

    The font selection box isn't updated because it doesn't know what font (if any) is being used. The font size box has this same problem.

    The current font isn't altered because there is no easy way to know where the next font begins in the document. If you were typing in the middle of the document & changed the font, you'd want it to just change that area and not anything after, so I'd need to know where that next font begins and it isn't an easy thing to do.

    If it made a mistake and missed a font tag, then there would be the possibility of the XML being messed up or mangling it so bad that Evernote rejected the note completely.

    A workaround for the second problem is to change the font and/or size by selecting text first. If you change existing text then anything within those bounds will retain the proper font because Webkit has already inserted the proper font & size tags.

    You can also go into Edit/Preferences and set the default font size for any new notes. This doesn't impact any old notes, but new ones will have the font you requested as the default.
