 MSWLogo 6.4h - setfont command fails - WinXP Pro


Hi,          I'd guess this one is for George Mills, but I was wondering
    if others had experienced the same or could check it out.
 Yes, I have also experienced this several times as well.   I use MSWLogo
6.4h on Win98SE & for the last several mos. Windows ME. Usually, it happens
when I try code posted in this forum. Since I'm usually interested
primarily in seeing the code work, or understanding its methodologies, so
I've typically found quick & dirty ways around it, like manually setting
the font from the menu.   Unfortunately, I haven't done as thorough
analysis as you have. :-(  To me the most perplexing is the times, several
of them, when I could access the specific font from the menu but not the
code.  Perhaps, serendipity sometimes works, the recent discussion about
multi-name fonts is relevant here... "|This may be a clue|  Bob  "To create

Oh dear, I thought I released a fix fonts a while back but it was not released.
I'll try to release it soon.

The problem is if you have more than a certain amount of fonts (64 or some
such) you can't reach ones past 64.
