Can't change font of main editor window Ubuntu 16.04

I can change the font for everything else but I can't seem to get se to change the font on the editor window. Anything I'm missing?

There are two editor window fonts:  SBCS/DBCS Source Windows and Unicode Source Windows

Tools > Options > Appearance > Fonts > ...

You are probably changing one but your code is identified as the other (a lot of source files have sneakily became Unicode in recent history).

There are also a few others, File Manager Windows, Hex Source Windows, and Diff Windows, just in case if you want to make sure SlickEdit uses your favorite font everywhere.

Funny story.  I added the Diff* Source Windows font options because, back when monitors were smaller and my eyesight was better, I liked to use a smaller font for Diff so that I could see more columns side-by-side.  Now that I have a 4k monitor, I've flip-flopped that and I use an extra-large font for Diff so that I can see all the details very clearly when I am reviewing changes.

I wasn't changing the Unicode versions. That is sneaky...
Thanks.
