Re: Problem setting bold fonts via .gvimrc
- Hi again,
As Kyle pointed out, after setting the font via MacVim menu "set
guifont?" command returned "Menlo bold:h15" (same for Consolas font).
It seems that, for these two fonts at least, correct way to set bold
fonts is by using "<font_name> bold:h<size>" instead of using the
":b" at the end.
Thanks a lot for your help Kyle.
P.S. BTW, when updating .gvimrc file remember to scape that blank
space, that is "set guifont=Menlo\ bold:h15"
