Font size and highlighting styles

SyntaxEditor for WPF Forum

I have two related issues when I’m trying to update all FontSize properties of highlighting styles, and apply it to a syntax editor:

  •  the line number font size of the syntax editor seems to be higher than the other font size styles (for example, when I set all font size to 12)
  •  the line height seems to be higher when you set a font size to the plain text style.

Here’s the code that I’m using (I tried directly this on your great sample):

Code behind:

private void FontFamilyComboBox_OnSelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
    var l_fontFamily = ((FontFamily)((FontFamilyComboBox)sender).SelectedValue).Source;
    foreach (var l_highlightingStyle in HighlightingStyleRegistry.HighlightingStyles)
        l_highlightingStyle.FontFamilyName = l_fontFamily;

private void Selector_OnSelectionChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
    var l_fontSize = Convert.ToDouble(((FontSizeComboBox)sender).SelectedValue);
    foreach (var l_highlightingStyle in HighlightingStyleRegistry.HighlightingStyles)
        l_highlightingStyle.FontSize = l_fontSize;


<Label Content="FontFamily" Grid.Row="0"/>
<ribbon:FontFamilyComboBox Grid.Row="0" IsEditable="False" x:Name="FontFamilyComboBox" SelectionChanged="FontFamilyComboBox_OnSelectionChanged"/>
<Label Content="FontSize" Grid.Row="1"/>
<ribbon:FontSizeComboBox Grid.Row="1" IsEditable="False" SelectionChanged="Selector_OnSelectionChanged" />
