#3046: Cannot set display font

Comment (by cmbarton):

 More information.

 I removed the ~.grass7/wx file to force GRASS to rebuild it. This does
 happen if save is pressed from preferences.

 If I go to preferences and select either display or command console font,
 I get a Mac-specific dialog to select fonts. But I cannot close the dialog
 to save the font. I can only crash the GUI to get out of this. After that,
 I was able to get the standard GRASS font dialog for display font and
 select a standard font (Helvetica in this case). But that font is not used
 in the display--only the old GRASS default font. I can even see
 "Helvetica" in the wx file and it seems OK. But it is not recognized.

 I have not been able to even get to the standard GRASS font selection for
 the console font. Trying to select it only gives the 3 column Mac font
 selector that does not work in this environment (which is why we had to
 build the existing font dialog).

 This is a pretty serious bug for the display. I don't know exactly when it
 was introduced, but it is fairly recent since I've been making maps
 periodically this year with no problem.
