Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Dream_Design\GLBasic\Font]
"Face"="Courier"
"Height"=dword:0000000c
"Width"=dword:0000000c

This will allow your font in editor!

How is this a bug?

Why would you want to use Courier as the font in your IDE?  That is just gross  :puke:

I can use Courier in the editor without changing the registry, can you clarify why we need to poke around there? :-)

Hmm, on second look, if I choose Lucida Console wich is my favourite, it cuts off w when it is on the end of a word and I use cleartype. If I turn off cleartype it works just fine.

GL-Basic sets the following values in the registry when I choose Lucida Console:

Height
fffffff3
width
0

If I change the width it gets slightly better but don't disapear totally.

Google for "Proggy Square". THE font for programmers.

Those seems to be all bitmap fonts, looks very ugly with TFT-screen and cleartype on. I still preffer Lucida Console but GL-Basic cuts off the end of "w", any idea why?
