Greetings,

after upgrading "xfce-base/xfce4-panel" from version 4.17.3 to 4.17.4 my
digital clock uses a tiny font which I cannot change. Whatever font and
font size I select in its "Property" dialog is ignored. It stubbornly
stays with "Sans Regular 8 px".

Searching the web did not turn up anything relevant and new. Is anybody
else using the digital clock in "xfce4-panel"?

Sincerely,
Rainer

I am using the digital clock as well and also noticed that it had changed
its font recently. However I could change it back to my preferred font without
problem, simply via right click -> Properties -> Font.
Maybe just try and change it manually by editing the config in
~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml?
It might be necessary to do so when logged out of xfce, or it might
overwrite the config again.

cheers
Holger

OMG: I simply ignored the "Select" button in the upper right corner and
always just clicked on the "Close" button in the lower right corner :-(
