I am new to Sublime, but I think that I'm following the directions correctly, but I am not able to change font_face in the User Settings. I am using Sublime Text 2 Build 2181 on a Macbook Pro. I have my User Settings (~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/User/Preferences.sublime-settings) font settings like this:
but the font displayed is the default font (Menlo Regular), which is in ~/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Default/Preferences (OSX).sublime-settings:
"font_face": "Menlo Regular",
In other words, it doesn't matter which font_face I set in my User Settings because the Default always overrides. The only thing that I am able to change from the User Settings is the font_size.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
