For those who can't find where to change the font, feel free to contact me through our support line and I'll see if I can set it for you. The number is 217-356-0105 ext 700.

For what's it's worth... putting 2 [Font] references into the preferences threw a wWidgets error. Poking around the interwebs I found this page:

http://willkamp.com/opencpn/flyspray/in ... sk_id=1551

OpenCPN will crash in Fontselector with OS X Yosemite when not used the latest commit for wxWidgets 3.1.0. Text from commit:

"Fix wxFontDialog exceptions on OS X Yosemite

Opening the font dialog would result in an exception in
RunMixedFontDialog:

-[NSView resetFlags]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x6080001285c0

The code in question assumed that NSFontPanel's accessory view either
didn't exist or was created by wx, and casted it to
wxMacFontPanelAccView* without checking. But this assumption is no
longer true on OS X 10.10, the view is apparently pre-set to some
default NSView instance.

Fix the code to check accessoryView's class before treating it as
wxMacFontPanelAccView."

Changing to latest wxWidgets 3.1.0 fixes this problem.

Email to support at sourcegear.com bounces?

I'll grab your email address you logged in your profile and send one to that. It will come from the support email.
