Powershell Font

I'd like to see a way to set the console font for embedded powershell windows.
Normally, I set my powershell windows to use Consolas, and I'm not seeing a way to do that in RDM.
Thanks,

The embedded PowerShell is the one from Windows so it should follow your configuration. Perhaps it's because we use the PowerShell 32 bit?

In that case, I'd like to amend this to let me select which version of Powershell I'm going to use :-) I have the 64bit version of RDM installed, so I should be able to pick the 64bit version of Powershell.

thank you,

In fact, if you use RDM 64 you should have PowerShell 64 embedded.

That is kind of what I expected, but I was not 100% sure if it was going to pick it up or not. It is definitely not picking it up though. I had modified the system level prompt, along with the console fonts for individual sessions, and none of those settings were passing through.

When I set individual profiles with the settings for the prompt, those did pick up. However, the console fonts never did pass through.

Thank you though, and I'm looking forward to trying 10.1.

Hi,
I will ask the team to verify if we missed something.

I did reconfirm this today. Running RDM x64, launched Powershell, and it was the x86 version of Powershell that launched.

When I launched the standalone x86 powershell console and made the font adjustments, the font change *did* pass through as you had said previously it would.

And looking through the configuration page for powershell, there already *is* an option to use x64, I just missed it.

So, thank you very much for spending time on my non-issue :-)

Thanks to you for the clarification. This could help someone else.
