Force custom font

<10kB. Updated 2012-08-23. Only supports Anki 2.0.x.

Description

This helps. The interface was completely unusable for me on Windows 10 without this change. I edited the file and switched to Verdana, and it's a huge improvement. It's still not a very crisp font on my Windows 10 computer, compared to the font on web pages, but it's probably usable. (I don't remember this being an issue on my old Windows 7 computer.)

Does not work on Anki 2.1 with iOS High Sierra.
Addon with Anki 2.0 does not change previewing font. Font is changed in menus and deck overview, but does not change font when displaying cards.

Very useful improvement of the user interface. Changed the Times back into Arial, because I'm OK with that, but the tip to set the font size with "mw.fontHeight = 16" was very useful to me! Thanks!

Great

That is what i have been found for a while. Great!

But there's a little regret that it can only change global font but not specified to languages.

Quite useful, also for increasing the font *size*. To do so, replace the line

 mw.fontHeight = f.pixelSize()

by (e.g.)

 mw.fontHeight = 16
