Proportional fonts lose italic/bold syntax highlighting

Proportional fonts lose italic/bold syntax highlighting

Postby a1tsal on Thu May 30, 2013 7:32 pm

In Packages/User/MultiMarkdown.sublime-settings , I have:

Code: Select all
{
        "font_face": "Calibri",
        "font_size": 18,
        "color_scheme": "Packages/User/EspressoMarkdownEditor.tmTheme"
}


With this, bold and italic syntax highlighting are lost in MultiMarkdown files. The face setting and size do take effect, and the color scheme's colors also appear—just not bold and italic.

Other fonts (e.g. Courier New) work fine (i.e. with bold and italic).

Is Calibri somehow incompatible? What sorts of fonts are, and are not, OK to use?

EDIT: ST2 Build 2217 on Mac.

EDIT 2:
Experimenting suggests that any monospaced font works, and all proportional fonts fail.

When editing Markdown, a proportional font is a big plus. Probably for other text-type formats as well.

This appears to just be a bug? Proportional fonts works in every way except that bold and italic get lost.

I'm trying out ST primarily as a Markdown editor, so this is possibly a deal-breaker...

Bump.

This is still an issue as of ST3 3047 on Windows 7 x64.

I developed a font with proportional and monospaced, and I've had multiple users tell me that they've run into this issue in SublimeText with the proportional versions. So +1 from me on getting this fixed. Much appreciated!
