Font Used in Book View

Version 0.4.2 had a nice Arial/Helvetica style font in the main Book View viewing area which displays the rendered text.

Since upgrading to version 0.5.3 I get a Times New Roman font for rendering the text, which I like much less.

How can I control the font which is used to render the text in the main Book View Sigil pane?

Thanks...

AFAI Sigil will use the font (if available) that the stylesheet for the book, calls for.
I think there was an upgrade to QT, which may have options (I have a separate control panel on my Ubuntu system for that), that Sigil has not linked in controls for.

Sorry I can't confirm this, on my System the default is still Sans-Serif. AFAIK theres no way to control the default Font, sigil uses if no other directive is given.

Put
Code:
body { font-family: sans-serif }
in your stylesheet.

Minor Bug with TOC-Generator ?

I noticed that Sigil resets the "SigilNotInToc" Class, if i change the level of "headings to include". Formery hidden toc-entries appear again.....

Workaround: Watch out and uncheck the entrys you don't want to see again after changing the level.

That's what selecting the headings to include is supposed to do. Its simply a convenient way to select/unselect a large number of entries at once, and then you can select/unselect individual ones if needed. What did you think it was supposed to do?

ups..... sorry

I recently worked with a book that has several hundred toc-entries (68 pages on my reader which has no support for a hierarchic toc), so i thought it's a good idea only to show entries up to level <h2> in toc.

There a few h1 entries which should not be shown in toc, no matter how many h* Levels are shown in total.
