Changing the menu font


Is it possible to change the menu font (e.g. to Arial, which was used in previous versions), not just the font size?

Thanks for your help!


The font type in the menu is determined by selected Look and Feel (e.g Mac, Windows,  GTK on Linux and Java's Metal or Nimbus). Try switching to another Look and Feel through Edit > Preferences > Appearance tab, which you may have reset during the update. On CafeTran application level, there has been no change regarding the font type in the latest update.

Thanks, that solved the problem!
My previous settings got lost shortly after the update (see this thread).
Just to make sure: It's not possible to change only the size of the menu font, is it?


The size of the menu font in the System Look and Feel (LAF) such as Windows or GTK on Linux is controlled by the operating system options (e.g. scaling or other system settings for interface elements). In CafeTran, you can change the size of the menu font for Java LAFs (e.g. default Nimbus) via the menu View > Font > User Interface.
