Attached is a modified SciTEGlobal.properties for use with Source Code Viewer version 2 (beta) which makes a couple of changes to the default configuration which comes with SciTE:
- All fonts changed to BitStream Vera Sans or BitStream Vera Sans Mono. (The default SciTE config uses several different fonts in various sizes which I found ugly, especially as Comic Sans was one of them.)
- Display of indentation and guide whitespace turned off by default.
- Colour of whitespace markers made a little lighter.
- End-of-line mode set to "CRLF" and "auto", although this seems to affect SciTE only, not the plugin, for some reason.
The original config file is also in the zip so you can use a diff tool to see exactly what I've changed. These changes are not huge but, as I wasn't familiar with SciTE, it took some searching to work out what to do and I figure if may save other people some time. (Thanks also to Jamie for helping me find what needed to be edited without having to RTFM too much.
The BitStream Vera Sans family of fonts are not part of a standard Windows install so you'll need to grab and install them before using the config file, or edit the fonts to something else. If you don't then you'll get some default fonts used. If the main font you see is not monospaced then you haven't installed the fonts properly.
The fonts are freely available from the Gnome FTP server and I've also attached the current version to this message to make life easier.
Use an Opus button which runs Copy INSTALLFONT as a quick way to install the fonts. (Unzip and select them first.) Or you can go to your Fonts folder and select Install Fonts from the menus.
The config file itself should replace C:\Program Files\Scintilla Text Editor\SciTEGlobal.properties if you've installed SciTE to the default location.
