BBEdit ignores font size changes

I was setting up my new computer, and trying to adjust font-sizes and other settings in BBEdit. BBEdit relies on the font-palette for all the font settings, but didn’t seem to notice any changes I was making. Apparently, even though this is a brand new system, and I had not brought over any settings from previous computers, something went wrong with the preference file. This is one of those times when removing preferences DOES fix the situation.

Of course finding the preferences when you can’t see the ~user/Library/ folder can be tricky. Open Terminal and paste in

chflags nohidden ~/Library/

then hit “enter”/”return”. Change it back with:

chflags hidden ~/Library
