Is it possible to setup a monospaced font (like Consolas) for code files (like .java) and a regular font (like Georgia) for txt files? I have always had

Global Style -> Global override

in Style Configurator and enabled Global font and Global size. That way everything had the same Consolas font. But text doesn't look as good in Consolas.

You can configure fonts, etc. individually with Settings > Style Configurator

Thanks but how do you add txt files to that left list you have C# selected in? – strider Mar 22 '12 at 23:24
It knows about "Normal Text" usually, you only overwrite styles for C# etc – ADNow Mar 23 '12 at 0:47
Aha, went into Global Styles and chose Default Style for my txt font. And then like you said, set font for C# separately and it worked. What sucks is there are multiple entries that you have to set. Seems like you can't just set Consolas 9 at one place for C#. But this is OK too. Thanks. – strider Mar 23 '12 at 12:58
Glad it helped. – ADNow Mar 23 '12 at 21:47
@ADNow: This is still a problem because Default Style applies to Normal Text, which means that every language then has to be set to the programming font... (over a dozen occurrences), and then later, if the programming font is changed, that's over a dozen occurrences to change as well. Have you been able to work around that? – Assad Ebrahim Oct 1 '14 at 7:18
