Maybe the UTF8-Problem ?

And the last point (for today :-) )
The Debugger switch the tab window at the Command Setlocal!

I have no problem selecting & using FixedSys (though I wouldn't *want* to -- it's a terrible font). What happens when you select it?

Another "issue" with the Tabs:
That would be a problem with the German language dll; I'll take a look at it.

WAD - when you have global aliases & functions, and you do a SETLOCAL, they get converted to local aliases & functions (provided you didn't already have local aliases/functions). This isn't new; the new thing in v26 is that is shows the global & local lists separately.

And likewise in TCEDIT. Selecting either "FixedSys" or "Terminal" yields something that looks like Lucida Sans Unicode. A huge improvement aesthetically, but it isn't a fixed-pitch font so columns won't line up.

And I see the same behavior in BDEBUGGER v25 and TCEDIT v25. So this issue may be caused by a change in Windows, rather than a change in Rex's code.

AnrDaemon may have the right of it. Microsoft may be trying to wean us from the bitmapped fonts.

You'd think they'd be smart enough to choose a monospaced one.

Yeah, FixedSys is not a beauty, but my first candidate for a fixed point or a monospaced font. If I select, it happens like Charles has it described

This is ok so far, but why must the debugger also select the tab ? This is for me an unwanted behaviour.
