iChat font size.
So I'm getting no where in any Apple user forums I know of so I'm hoping maybe a blog post will garner me some Google mojo on a Panther problem.
I set incoming/outgoing fonts in iChat to be the same size and font.
But the font almost immediately becomes one point size smaller after I've set it!
Select 11 point Lucida. Switch to a different program. Switch back to iChat. Start typing. Hit Return. Hey look, it's 10 point Lucida in the window.
And it doesn't happen to anyone else. Damn it. I'm cursed.
Anyway, if you have this weird, annoying, niggling issue, let me know in a comment or something.
While I'm on font issues, it annoys the living spit out of me that if you select an item in your Startup Items prefs pane in Panther, its font changes from Lucida to Helvetica.
I do like Panther; I think it is a leap forward in many ways. But then I read things like this and I get cranky again. And that doesn't even mention the massive Network connection cockup. The devil is in the motherfucking details, Apple!

I probably won't upgrade to Panther fora while ..... I was pissed off enough at paying £90 for Jaguar, and considering I don't do anything especially complicated and things work OK for what I want them to do, there really doesn't seem much point in spending another £90 just for a few visual tweaks.

I suffer from a similar nagging problem. Seems like iChat doesn't want Tahoma 11.0 point size, and switches to 10.0 by itself. When I try 12.0 pt size, it is retained!
I was looking for a way to delete the Font styles (Document styles in Chat window -> right click -> Font -> Styles -> Docment styles), but no success!
