Thats more than I deserve  Roll Eyes

Maybe "Consolas" would be fine, or "DejaVu"? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samples_of_monospaced_typefaces
I m not sure about the size.

No problem, I don't get such good donations every day... Smiley I don't have DejaVu here, but below is a preview of the GUI with Consolas, size 12. Let me know if you would you like that and I can make the release tomorrow morning.

I like it. Size 12 is perfect for me.
Maybe there are other users who prefer that font.

The problem is that some versions of XP don't have that font and I'm not sure if
distributing it with my build is allowed.

Here's a temporary link to a quick patch to use Consolas size 12 with your current version of Electrum.

Download that gui_pt.qy file (original code by ThomasV of course), and copy it to this directory:
 %AppData%\Electrum-P\R052\C_\ElectrumPY\electrum

Filesize and MD5 for this patch must be 43,218 bytes and E536A6B53CBD732C5EB570874F2DD01C if you want to verify integrity.

Don't hesitate to let me know if any issues.

Many thanks for the "special edition"  Wink
Consolas looks nice, its perfect! It would be great if you could include it (or a similar one) in the Build (size 11 and/or 12 pt). http://www.johndcook.com/blog/2009/09/21/free-alternative-to-consolas-font/
A proposal: Could you make the gui a bit larger?

A donation is on the way.

Great, thanks for your feedback and looking forward to receiving the donation Smiley

I'm not sure how to please everybody regarding font and window size preferences, will
think about what would be the best way to proceed...

Yes I think that would be great. It would certainly help keep the same source code
for Linux and Windows (currently I have to manually fine-tune gui_qt.py with each build,
to make the GUI look nice on Windows)

Ideally, font type and size would be user options, and window size, position
and column widths could be also saved, if that is feasible for you?

Surely Linux users will appreciate this too, I guess.

I'll try to make the GUI a bit larger in the next release already.

Thanks for the donation, it made my day!

Donating at least 1 BTC for downloading the Client should be self-evident.

Build 0.52-1 has been released, with a couple minor improvements:

- streamlined command-line: syntax now identical to Linux (no more parentheses)
- fixed occasional wallet restore stalling
- 30% larger main window

[EDIT] Available now!

Yes, it was windows specific. I could fix it without having to touch the electrum code.
There was something wrong with pythonw.exe that was causing it. I managed to remove any
dependencies on pythonw.exe (GUI-only interpreter) from my package and replace
it with the standard python.exe runtime (version 2.7.3.1) with no side-effects.

  • ***** gui_qt.py
            self.create_status_bar()
            self.setGeometry(100,100,840,582)
            title = 'Electrum ' + self.wallet.electrum_version # + '  -  ' + self.wallet.path

  • ***** GUI_QT.PY
            self.create_status_bar()
            self.setGeometry(100,100,860,482)
            title = 'Electrum ' + self.wallet.electrum_version # + '  -  ' + self.wallet.path

You didnt change the width that much. I changed it to (100,100,960,582) just to see, and for me it looks better.

The address column is still a bit too small to see the complete row. I also can't see the freeze [F] mark (with font size 12).

Yes, it's quite hard for me to choose the values you would like most, especially as my computer screen is very small, so feel free to experiment Smiley

The column widths of the receive tab are defined in lines 580-583. You can play around with them till you're happy Smiley  Hopefully the client will soon be able to remember all these preferences automatically.

def create_receive_tab(self):
        l = QTreeWidget(self)
        l.setColumnCount(4)
        l.setColumnWidth(0, 380)
        l.setColumnWidth(1, 250)
        l.setColumnWidth(2, 180)
        l.setColumnWidth(3, 20)

Perfect!  Smiley

Do you know if there is a way to avoid the sending to a random change address? As the change addr is not listed in the gui, you can't see the correct balance after a transaction, you always have to check it with the commands (console).
It would be great if the user could determine his own change address (in the gui), eg. the source addr.

Hi,
to my knowledge, there is currently no way of specifying a preferred change address.
I don't even know if this is possible within the bitcoin protocol, perhaps ThomasV can comment on that?

But regardless, you should always see the correct global balance in the GUI. Otherwise, it could be
a display bug. Can you post a screenshot of a specific example where the balance is not correct?
