#2450: Grass7: improve font selection dialog in GUI option for map display
 Reporter:  hellik       |       Owner:  grass-dev@…              
     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new                      
 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:  7.0.0                    
Component:  wxGUI        |     Version:  unspecified              
 Keywords:  fonts        |    Platform:  Unspecified              
      Cpu:  Unspecified  |  
 in the GUI options there are 2 tabs where you can choose fonts:

 (1) fonts in command output
 (2) fonts for map display

 in (1) there is a nice dialog, for (2) the dialogue is rudimentary (see
 screenshot attached).

 fontcap file content:

 cordiaub|CordiaUPC Bold|1|C:\Windows\Fonts\cordiaub.ttf|0|utf-8|
 cordiaui|CordiaUPC Italic|1|C:\Windows\Fonts\cordiaui.ttf|0|utf-8|
 cordiauz|CordiaUPC Bold Italic|1|C:\Windows\Fonts\cordiauz.ttf|0|utf-8|
 cordiaz|Cordia New Bold Italic|1|C:\Windows\Fonts\cordiaz.ttf|0|utf-8|
 cour|Courier New Regular|1|C:\Windows\Fonts\cour.ttf|0|utf-8|
 courbd|Courier New Bold|1|C:\Windows\Fonts\courbd.ttf|0|utf-8|
 courbi|Courier New Bold Italic|1|C:\Windows\Fonts\courbi.ttf|0|utf-8|
 couri|Courier New Italic|1|C:\Windows\Fonts\couri.ttf|0|utf-8|

 in (2) only the font acronym is displayed.

 maybe the nice dialog of (1) could be added to (2)?

 maybe it's also possible to add a font selection dialog to e.g. the d.vect
 font=string option?
