Fonts don't apply when setting via terminal

Reported by Henrique Beier | October 14th, 2016 @ 11:36 PM

If I set the fonts via terminal, the changes are not reflected on MailMate even if I relaunch the app. The only way to force an update for the fonts is changing the zoom level.

For example, I entered the following command on terminal:

defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmMessagesWebViewWebKitStandardFont -string ".SFNSText-Regular"

Only after I clicked the message view and hit Cmd + the fonts were applied.

Version 1.9.5 (5263)

    Hmm, maybe the WebView (Apple code) ignores a font if there is no setting for the font size. In that case, it might work if you also explicitly configure a size:

    defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmMessagesWebViewWebKitDefaultFontSize -integer 13

    This suggestion is untested.
