This is a good work around.  The only thing I don't like about perl/Tk
is that I have trouble making layout and font size work well
regardless of platform or screen resolution.  So this work-around is
probably the best solution in the short- to mid-term.  I should also
mention that, although fonts cannot currently be set using the
preferences dialog, you can edit your configuration file by hand to
use different fonts.  (That's ~/.horae/<program>rc on unix and
C:\Program Files\horae\<program>\<program>.ini on windows.)

This problem with layout and fonts is somewhat serious, but not a big
enough problem yet to drive me to consider using a different GUI

Could you send a screen shot of this to me directly, please?

I should also mention that I have bug reports/suggestions from four
people in the queue of things to do (thanks to Carlo, Paul, Scott, and
Marco).  For the last few days, I have been using my programming time
to get ready for a new and improved windows installer, but I intend to
address all of these bugs before the next release.
