    I love the changes that have been made, cool improvements and pretty useful too, only that new gtk2 engine seems not to support non-standard characters so that’s an issue for me.

    Luka, you may need to change the default font setting. The file to edit is c:\Program Files (x86)\Shoes\etc\gtk-2.0\gtkrc just replace “Sans 10” with you’re font choice and size. You can also rename the gtkrc file to something else and Shoes will go back to the older look.

      I did what you said, tried to replace font name and to replace/rename/remove gtkrc file and nothing really happened.
