    How do I change the font for the log window ? The current one does not have fixed width chars and that makes it unusable for me as I display often tables in the log.

    Example:
    9 12
    XXXXxxxxxx
    XXXXxxxxxx
    XXXXxDXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXAA[]XX
    [][][][][]
    [][][][][]
    On avance un peu (false)
    25 15
    XX[][][]XX
    XX[][][]XX
    XX[]AA[]XX
    XX[][][]XX
    XX[][][]XX
    XXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXxDXXXX
    XXxxxxXXXX
    xxxxxxxxXX
    On avance un peu (false)
    26 15
    XXXX[][][]XX
    XXXX[][][]XX
    XXXX[]AA[]XX
    XXXX[][][]XX
    XXXX[][][]XX
    XXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXxDXXXXXX
    XXXXxxxxXXXX
    xxxxxxxxxxXX
    On avance un peu (true)
    37 15
    XX[][][]XXXX
    XX[][][]XXXX
    XX[]AA[]XXXX
    XX[][][]XXXX
    XX[][][]XXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXXXXXXXXXXX
    XXxx[]xDXXXX
    xxxxxxxxXXXX
    xxxxxxxxXXXX
    dispose
    JH=12,105,240
    NH=11,047,120
    JH=12,106,136
    NH=11,047,120

    Currently it is not possible to change the logs font.

    It's certainly trivial for 99% of users, but for me this is such a problem that I have to renounce using this version. The debugger is of no use with UltimateListView or libGDX so I rely entirely upon the log data. All console or logging window that I know use fixed width fonts so I'm bit puzzled by this choice. As for the comment/uncomment button, I cannot see the benefit.
    For those who want a workaround, it is possible to use the Monitor tool of Google, provided with the SDK, and filter the B4A tag.

    I agree that would be better a fixed size font for the log window.
    Also I have noted now in 5.00/5.01 that sometime a LF is missing and some log strings are on the same line, for example

    ** Activity (main) Resume **~i:** Service (inboxcleaner) Create **~i:** Service (inboxcleaner) Start **

    Looking the log with the Google Monitor tool I correctly see three separated lines

    I'm having problems with v 5 log font - on my screen it is pretty small, and my eyes aren't what they used to be ... Fixed width is not my problem, but font size is.
