SecureCRT on Ubuntu doesn't show system fonts

I haven't used SecureCRT on Ubuntu for a while. I've installed 8.5.3 on Ubuntu 18.04.2. It works great but doesn't show most of the system fonts.
I've installed Nerd fonts from GitHub and can use them in other apps but SecureCRT just doesn't see them.

Hi horseinthesky,

SecureCRT only lists fonts that are marked as "fixed width" in the font definition.

If you have installed Nerd fonts and they (and other system fonts) do not show up in SecureCRT it is because they and are missing this "fixed width" designation.

In this particular case, if a Nerd font is "fixed width" but its font designation does not indicate it, then you can allow SecureCRT to display non-fixed width fonts by setting the "Allow Proportional Fonts" value to 00000001 in your Global.ini file in SecureCRT's Config folder.

Warning: If you choose a font that is not monospaced (eg. fixed width) you will have display problems because glyphs within the font do not all have the exact same width.

With this option a can see all the fonts and it seems there are no noticeable display problems.
