In order to track it down, I have to have more info.

1. When you edit the file, what is the language set to?
2. Do you have a lexer configured for e.g. Python (if saving to .py)?
3. Is there a font set to a kind of sans serif?
4. If possible step by step instructions because I haven't seen this yet.
