The font on Edit Box is different than what I set
I set my EditBox font to Consolas, and I noticed there is difference on how the font looks while it is being typed (before pressing Enter) and after it is inputted (after pressing Enter).
While I was typing, the font on Edit Box looks like this:
After I press Enter, then if I press Up on keyboard to show the input history, it looks like this:
Is it possible to make the font looks the same? Did I make any mistake when configuring the font? I made the font change from Tools - Options - Font & Size and choose Editbox.
I am not able to reproduce this, but you can try another font (only truetype fonts) or this https://dev.adiirc.com/issues/5790#note-7
I found the cause, it's because I'm using Japanese IME
When using Japanese IME, you can quickly toggle between Japanese character and English character:
Turns out if I use the English character from Japanese IME, the Editbox will have that problem.
When I switched to English (US Keyboard) input method, the problem doesn't happen.
FYI, I always use English character from Japanese IME for my daily use, and this font problem doesn't happen on Hexchat.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Switch to Japanese IME and toggle the English character.
2. On AdiIRC, join a channel
3. On Editbox, starts typing. The Editbox uses different font than the one you set.
4. Leave the channel (type /part)
5. Switch to English (US Keyboard) input method
6. Join a channel
7. Starts typing on Editbox. The Editbox uses the correct font, based on your settings.
I thought that might be the case, the richtextbox which the editbox is based on, uses dual fonts to support characters in other languages.
Unfortunately, I'm not aware of a way to fix that without disabling dual fonts and IME support.
Oh ok, no problem. It can be solved easily by switching to English (US Keyboard) then switching back.
