Changing font in preferences is not applied to existing editors

Keywords: font preference Cc:


When the font is changed using the preference dialog, the new font is only applied to editors created after that change. Existing editors are not updated.

As Prefs->Editor font dose not work, reduced default font size to 9, so as to see a normal line on a 1024x768 monitor

Confirm this bug.
Padre - 0.92.
Cannot change font (size and type) via Tools->Preferences->Appearance, 'Editor font'. Settings are saved but visually nothing changes.

All changes driven by the Preferences dialog are now applied via the Padre::Config::Apply system (so this logic can be shared with other subsystems such as Preferences Sync).

Added apply methods for editor_font and editor_currentline_color so the Preferences dialog can apply these settings correctly.
