Is it maybe possible to add 2-3 different kind of fonts to the options in the next releases? The font looks good on my pc, but not on my TV/720p-resolution, where the actual one is hard to read...

And another thing came to my mind when using Mandelbulber, what I am missing a bit is a "new"-function...or some delete/reset-functions for some things. Sometimes I have done some strange camera-movements and missed a "back to the start"-button for example beside the undo/redo...or just a "clear all / new project-button" in the menu...

Edit: Not to forget the scrollwheel of my mouse: there are several boxes inside the program where I could / have to scroll with my mousewheel...but If I am not careful I do not a scroll, I change some values just because the pointer came over an input-box when scrolling...is there maybe a possibility to do something that this does not happen so quick? Maybe by making values changeable only if they are clicked/chosen before the change? Just a suggestion...

I will check what is possible about font selection. Under Linux it uses system font. For Windows probably there would be needed some option to select one of system fonts. As always I need to find cross-platform solution.

You don't need NEW function, because this function is taken by top toolbar where you have set of default presets which you can use as a starting point.

Unfortunately I cannot change this behavior because qspinbox edit field comes from standard Qt library. There is no option to change this. Even if I change focusPolicy to Qt::ClickFocus, the value still can be changed by mouse wheel.

Regarding the font/cross-plattform, I love it that it is so easy to make Mandelbulber run on my Windows-pc and also on my Raspberry (for Netrender)...hopefully it will stay so easy to compile/run on both platforms in future  :thumbs: With 2.12 I have had problems with Netrender, but 2.13 is fine on both systems again.
