Unable to change font for History

I'm running ACT Pro V19.2.146.0 on Windows 10

 

I go to Tools/Preferences/Colors&Fonts/History List

Then I try to change the font to Arial 10 and hit OK

But the change does not take effect.

 

I go to Tools/Preferences/Colors&Fonts/History Detail Composition

Then I try to change the font to Arial 10 and hit OK

Re: Unable to change font for History

Changing the History Composing font will only effect new histories, not existing Histories.

Re: Unable to change font for History

It's not working for old, new or any histories.

Re: Unable to change font for History

The composing font only effects the history details and only sets the default font. No old histories will be changed.

Re: Unable to change font for History

please read my post and reply before responding.

 

the font is not changing going forward; it's not changing for new histories created, etc.

 

I don't know how else to explain this simple concept to you

Re: Unable to change font for History

When you create the new History, are you adding Details in the Details Tab?

Also, some Windows 10 updates have killed or damaged some fonts.

Re: Unable to change font for History

The issue does not lie in the "details" section.

 

The issue lies in the "regarding" section.

 

I don't have an issue with Windows 10 Arial 10 font on any other software on my computer.

 

Nor do I have an issue with Arial 10 font in the notes section.

 

I only have an issue with History/regarding section

Re: Unable to change font for History

Did you try the "History Tab" option?

The Details and List won't change the Regarding

I did, but that doesn't work nor should it. I don't want to change the Tab font, I want to change the font of the History/Regarding section.

Please try to be respectful to other user's in the community with your responses.

 

Would it be possible to show screenshots of the issue so that we may better understand the area you are looking to change the font.
