Over the weekend I went through the MultiBit dialogs to make sure the user chosen font was being rendered properly.
Here is a screen shot:



I've gone through the following dialogs/ tabs and made sure the font is now rendered ok:

+ open wallet dialog
+ new wallet dialog
+ dialog dealing with bitcoin URIs.
+ import private keys open file dialog
+ export private keys open file dialog
+ help screen
+ buttons on the transactions details dialog
+ transactions tab Bitcoin amount

The font on the dialog title e.g. "Create a new wallet" is drawn by the operating system so I cannot change that.
I've also increased the spacing on the font chooser dialog as it was a bit cramped.
The changes will appear in the next test and production code.

I've added in a little highlighting to the icon of the selected wallet:



It's subtle but makes it a bit easier to see which wallet is selected when you run your eye along the left edge of the Wallets panel.
(This is in the encrypted wallet code - there is no wallet type icon in the live code).

I've put in some keyboard shortcuts to move 'up' and 'down' the list of wallets.

Say you have five wallets and the third one is selected.

Now if you press Shift-Up the second one will be selected.
Similarly a Shift-Down will select the fourth one.

It is a good way of reviewing, say, all of your transactions by zipping between your wallets.


This is in the test code but will migrate to the live code at the next release.

I am thinking also of putting in Ctrl-TAB and Ctrl-Shift-TAB (the same as in browsers) to swop between the main display tabs (Send, Request, Transactions etc).
