Summary0001434: Fix how the letter "d" is shown in Pattern editor

In Pattern Editor, what looks like a p with the stem cut off is actually the letter "d". Can this be fixed? I attached a screenshot so you can see what I'm referring to. It's a minor bug, but always causes me to mess up panning (p) instead of changing volume (d).

TagsNo tags attached.
Has the bug occurred in previous versions?
Tested code revision (in case you know it)

It's not a workaround, but choosing a bitmap-like font such as Unifont (, worked for me using a dark color scheme. Currently any other font will display as lowercase, which could work for you meanwhile.

That is because in the volumn column, the effect letters are scaled-down uppercase letters, instead of lowercase letters, for display. You can see this better, when you enter one of the effects "a", "b", "h", "g", "f" and "e".

Maybe changing the built-in fonts to display lowercase letters instead would be the better option in the future.
