* Some of the fonts are not vertically aligned - not sure whether this is just not selecting the right Minimum Row Alignment value.
Sure ! some fonts may need to select an alignment matching with your screen (and your wish :D ).

* Some of the fonts don't seem to scroll? (Scroll Speed is default = Normal)
Already answered to this : you need to change the number of characters per line in the General screen settings section.

example : with a 16x20 font on a 128x32 screen you should set 128/16=8 characters per line.
OK, even if I fix the scrolling issue by setting the correct characters per line, how can I resolve the issue with the second line being truncated and not centered?

Also, the menu is almost unusable with the bigger fonts. How can you have big fonts, but still usable menu? Unless, if you can specify a different font for the menu?

Forget about my question about the second line not being centered - I now realise there is additional text shown on the left once it is actually connected up to my Amiga 1200. But there is still the issue with it being truncated when the larger fonts are being used.

Maybe, being able to choose a different smaller font for the second line might help?

i think that i will instead reformat/rearrange the second line to fit a 8 characters line with larger fonts.
