Hi vikotse,

I'm sorry you're having trouble.

What version of SecureCRT are you running?

What Operating System are you running SecureCRT on?

SecureCRT only ships with one font. Generally it will allow use of any fixed-width font installed on your machine. Do you have any fixed-width fonts installed? An easy test to see if a font is fixed-width is to type a line of "i" characters, say 30, and right below it type a line of "m" characters, also 30. If the font is fixed-width the lines will end lined up with each other.

SecureCRT version: Version 8.0.0 (build 1063) - Official Release - March 31, 2016

Operating System: macOS Sierra 10.12.6

My computer has lots of fixed-width fonts as below:

Hi vikotse,

I believe a newer version of SecureCRT addressed the issue you are seeing.

Changes in SecureCRT 8.0.2 (Official) -- June 14, 2016
- Mac: Depending on how SecureCRT was launched, the font list in the Session Options dialog could be empty.

I would recommend using the Check for Updates option found in the main Help drop down menu to upgrade to the most recent version of SecureCRT that your license supports.

After upgrading does the behavior you see change?
