missing font

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Hi, Notepad++ is excellent.

    I noted a missing font that appears in other editors and apps but is missing in notepad++. Bitstream Vera San Mono is missing.

    To be more exact in the font drop-down selection I have: Bitstream Vera San Mono Bold. I observe the only font of this type I can get is BOLD. I assume if it said in the drop-down menu: Bitstream Vera San Mono, then I'd have the expected choices for this font.

    Could anyone please tell me what to do to fix?

    Thanks, Lee G.

      Follow up my post above - the solution posted here http://sourceforge.net/forum/message.php?msg_id=3912986 works for me, although in v4.7.5 the file to edit is called "stylers.xml" rather than "content.xml".

      Although the non-bolded variants of the fonts don't reappear in the font selection dropdown, I'm able to modify styles using the style configurator and my desired non-bolded font still displays, including after restart.

      Sorry for any duplication of presumably known issues.

      I am experiencing exactly the same problem. Has anybody any ideas on how to fix this?

        Hi, has anyone found a resolution for this?

        Downloaded notepad++ today, installed on two computers running XP and have the same issue.

        On one system I have Bitstream Vera Sans Mono displaying only bold option; on the other this font shows up correctly. However, on the other the same problem exists with Consolas, Tahoma and many others both monospaced and proportional.

        I notice a couple of related bug reports that appear to have been closed - am I missing something?
