I have been plagued by this problem since using the beta of 1.5 and then the official 1.5 release. I have not posted on it since I couldn’t figure out how to repeat the problem (which hasn’t exactly changed) but I am going to just throw it up here for feedback. I write in Palatino size 14 font and every now and then, I’ll hit RETURN and when I go to type, Lucida Grande size 14 font is used instead of palatino. If I hit delete a few times to go back to the previous line, palatino returns, or I simply hit cmd + a, cmd + t and then set the font back to palatino. I have checked the settings to make sure palatino 14 is default, and I have spent hours trying to reproduce the problem but it keeps happening randomly. Heres the best I could so for reproducing:
- Hitting return twice and then holding shift while hitting backspace once.
- Hitting control while holding shift
- Hitting return twice while holding shift
- Hitting control while holding control, cmd, or option.
Basically I have tried to activate the font change by holding another key down while hitting return, thinking that in the course of my writing my left pinkie may be brushing against a key while I hit return and that is the cause of the problem. The change does not seem to occur when simply hitting return by itself, but all my attempts have occurred randomly so it’s anyone’s guess.
If anyone has any feedback on this I would love to hear it. It would be nice to know I’m not too crazy…
Thanks and hope to hear back soon.
