|Summary||0030085: Source Editor font size - Pixels vs Point size|
|Description||I remember years back you could specify the editor font as a|
positive value (point size) and a negative value (pixel size). This
doesn't seem possible with v1.7 any more. Martin Frb said it should still work,
and that I must report it here.
I'm using Lazarus 1.7 r51695 FPC 2.6.4 x86_64-linux-gtk 2 and my X11 is
forced to 96 dpi.

I believe the behaviour was last changed due to 0017694
It was decided then to enforce only positive sizes. But for compatibility it was necessary to keep and allow negative, if the users config had a negative number. Once the user made changes to positive there was no way back.
Well actually if the font selection dialog allowed (maybe OS specific?) to enter a negative number, then that would work.
It is still a good idea to generally encourage the use of only one font size specification and keep numbers positive.
Therefore the up/down arrows will not go over there range.
I did add however that you can enter the - sign into the text field, and that should now work.
Please test and close if ok
Unless I misunderstood what you changed, but I still can't enter a negative value in the IDE's "Editor -> Display -> Editor font size" edit box.
As for the "Select Font" dialog, I can enter a negative value in the Font Size edit box, though the font size Listbox (I think that is what it is), but as soon as I tab out of the Font Size edit box (so the preview area can update), it reverts to the first selection in the font size listbox (the value 6 in my case).
Also in the "Select Font" dialog, if I enter -10 as the font size, and then simply click OK to close the dialog, the IDE "Editor -> Display -> Editor font size" edit box doesn't update.
