Hi

I kind of like the new one better, but I have no idea why the fonts changed. am I missing something crucial? or shall I consider it a fortuitous serendipity?

thank you

A

Sweet ethereal zepher, tis only your psychic energy, trifling with your corporeal sensuousness: reaching into Scrivener`s innermost cyber-consciousness intent upon naught but a little innocent mischief. Just ensure you know howest to recall, by name, your new found runic friend. The magic of innocent mischief, is that it is so easily reversed.

You are far wiser than I, o surfer of solar winds, but orbiting my cranial asteroid belt, is the notion, that: if you choose a character that your original font can`t handle, it flips to a font that can. I think. If no other fellow voyager sates your desire for truth, I shall bring all my psychic powers to bear, and summon one to assist.

what vic-k is mumbling about is that the text system will fall back to the default font if the current font can not support the typed character.

How was your adventure?

...or else it is just the consequence of psychic mischievousness :wink:

Hi,

Are you on Snow Leopard? And what font does it change to? Lucida Grande? I ask because I am seeing this regularly on Snow Leopard - just hitting return occasionally changes from my default font to one of the system fonts. It seems to be a bug in the text system to do with all the new checks that they do (even if they're not switched on, which they're not in Scrivener yet). What is it you've typed immediately before the font changes?

All the best,
Keith
