(Actually, I'd prefer to use Serif for all of them, but the serif fonts I have contain poor Unicode support, so I really like to use Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to the Fonts pane in Preferences 2. Select a charset (such as Western) 3. Choose Serif for the Proportional font 4. Select a different charset (such as Unicode) 5. Choose Sans-Serif for the Proportional font 6. Go back to the first charset (Western) The same results occur no matter which two charsets are used Actual Results: The Western charset (and all others as well) now uses Sans-Serif for the Proportional font for this charset. Expected Results: Allowed Western to remain with Serif while Unicode used Sans Serif. If this remains a global preference, put the selctor box for Proportional above the one for the charset and seperate this choice from the choices that can be made on a per charset basis. The UI certainly creates the impression that this choice should be doable on a per charset basis, which is the behavior I would want to have.
This bug has gotten no attention (not even to confirm that it exists) and is still present in 1.3 final. Reaffirming and assigning to another component where it might get some attention since Preferences does not appear to be the proper place.
