I am not sure what you mean, could you exaplain a bit further?

This release will have basic preliminary printing features. I have a lot
more planned for the next release but it takes time to do things right so
this feature maybe added after this release
> currently selected font

I plan on actually allowing settings to be saved as default this will
include the font. I am guessing you want this so that the unicode modules
will use their font? I should think about this a bit more if that is the

I am curious when would this be appropiate?

I use a lib called RxLib for the Font combobox I don't know that it would be
very benificial for me to change the source code for this to allow for this,
since adding fonts and using sword at the same time may only happen once in
a thousand times. Maybe I misunderstood your request though.

>Displaying right to left texts right to left.

Oops, I had this included but I moved it so it only works when you turn on
paragraph formatting. I will fix this thanks.

Hopefully this is fixed. Let me know when I get my new stuff in. Should be
soon, probably Monday.

Fixed this. I noticed this too, it was an error on my part.

That is Troy's domain but I have a feeling not, because the cursor tracking
is used for the hint pop-ups.

No problem, please keep the input coming our way.
