I understand that the font selection in Program Settings is for fonts in resources. Specifically the Syriac font setting is for Syriac resources (but also effects Syriac text in other resources). My concern is with font selection in the tools.

It seems that some tools such as Clippings and Notes allow the selection of a font. Others such as the Exegetical Guide, Word List, and Word Find Puzzle do not appear to allow the selection of a default font or font for the displayed text.

If there is a way to change these settings then, please, would someone point me in the direction of where and how to affect that change? If not, then would the developers and managers at Logos please seriously consider adding the capability to these tools? It may not seem critical to some, but some languages, such as Syriac, have more than one script and being forced to use the default font requires many of us to use a script with which we are not familiar or comfortable reading. The choice of script, unlike the choice of font, is not just a stylistic change.

Thanks!

We're aware of this issue and plan to address it by switching from an Estrangelo font to a Serto font in the UI based on your resource font preference. (Unfortunately, this fix didn't make it into the initial release of 5.0 because it's a little complex to implement in WPF.)
