    Custom Text Settings Reverting To Default.

    Following clean install I set the 'Icons' text to size 11 and bold. This was fine all day yesterday and through a few shutdowns and restarts. Today and those settings have reverted to default, but not only that, the options to change them back again are greyed out as can be seen in the screen shot. Following a shutdown/reboot after first noticing this, and the options are available again but are as before set to the default '9' size text.

    I also set the mouse pointer to large black and that to has reverted to default today.

    Yeah, something weird going on there!
    Try setting the % back to 100 if applicable and see what happens to greyed out options.

    Thanks Edwin. It seems what you suggest does have an effect. If I set it 150% the options become greyed out, set them back to 100 or 125% and the option returns.

    Still a mystery why the setting changed on its own though, and the mouse pointer reverting.
