hy not make a vote? Attached are two screenshots, one with Vera
>>> one with Vera normal, both on Linux, both on pd-extended 0.40.

>>> [ ] normal.png
>>> [ ] bold.png
1) i vote normal, the bold looks way too heavy to me. reading the

won't this make the patches render at different sizes depending on your
choice of font? so now if i want to open frank's GOP patchs and have
them render right i have to remember to turn on the bold flag, which
then makes all my patches render wrong?
