Selected message font does not stick

Reported by Michael Ray Brown | April 4th, 2021 @ 07:00 PM

Using the "test" version on Big Sur, the font for displaying a message does not save my changes. It changes the font only on the message being viewed at that time. Click on any other message, and the typeface and size change dramatically.

    No, the link to the test version above is only available when I send you the link. It's not on the homepage.

    But I did find two bugs related to setting the font. Both will be fixed in r5793.

    (Note that for most HTML messages, you can only change the font by using the minimum font size setting in the Viewer preferences pane.)

    As I wrote, you need r5793 for the fixes mentioned. Did you get that and the reference to r5792 was a typo?

    Sorry, I wasn't very clear when I wrote it. Here's a direct link to the latest test release if you need it: r5794.

    Well, the new message view didn't really support overriding the styling (including) fonts used by the sender. It was a bug that it temporarily worked on the displayed message when changing the font. This is fixed and therefore it may seem like a step back, but it really was a bug.

    The new message view is based on a different HTML view than the old one (which has been deprecated by Apple) and font settings work differently now. The old HTML view allowed a set of default fonts to be defined, but this now has to be “injected” into the HTML itself and I haven't looked into that yet. By default, it is important that it only affects emails with few or no explicit font settings. (You can create a new ticket if you like, but I do have this feature on my list.)

    Additional note: I expect this to work more like you would expect in the next update (r5795+).

    The r5795 update is available now.
