Editor Font selection problem

The Editor font selection process is seriously screwed up in PhpStorm. I have both 6.03 and 131.98 installed. They both have the same problem. It's impossible to select any other font than the top one. It's broken.

Hi there,

Well ... it works fine here on both of my computers (Windows 7 x64 SP1 ENG) -- possibly it's your computer-specific issue (if you are on Windows like me).

1) Please check your idea.log for possible hints (Help | Show Log in ...)

2) See if reinstalling/switching Java will help here

Thanks for the quick reply. I use phpstorm on multiple computers and they all have the same problem. It's very unusual to see such a fundamental problem, because I love your software. It must be somethnig with my computers. I cannot select anything in the Editor >Colors & Fonts >Font window, except the Scheme . I cannot change Size or Line Spacing or select any of the Avilable fonts.
If I double click the Selected fonts window, then the top avilable font moves over the Selected fonts window.
It's very weird.

I see now.

It's not a bug -- it's intended.

You cannot modify BUNDLED scheme (fonts and colors). You have to create your own ("Save As" button) and use it -- then you can make modificiations as required.

The problem that I see here .. is that on Darcula UI Theme it's rather hard to easily notice disabled controls (I mean: difference between enabled and disabled). If you would use "normal" UI theme (I'm using Windows UI theme), it would be easy to spot such difference.
