Yes, you have to select a region of text before using
(set-view-font <window> <font-spec>).
You can also put these forms in your init.lisp file, to set
the default fonts for new windows:
(setf *fred-default-font-spec* '("monaco" 14 :plain))
(setf *listener-default-font-spec* '("monaco" 14 :plain))
A font spec can be just a string (the font name), a number
(the size), a keyword (the style or transfer mode), or
a list of these. See chapter 3 of the MCL ref manual for more
about font specifications.
See chapter 14 (Programming the Editor) for more about
writing code to set the fonts in editor buffers.
