I hear you and I agree and I just don't have the time/energy to hack on fonty right now.

Your suggestion is here, in the tracker, so one day I or maybe Michael will give it a hack.

I suppose this could also be called a feature request:
The help window in Fonty Python cannot be resized, which is rather bothersome if the desktop environment is running with a non-standard dpi setting. Due to this, I need to scroll horizontally in order to read a full line of text.

Another way of fixing this could be to "wrap" all the text so that it would fit regardless of the DPI setting, or, to scale down the help text in regard to the DPI setting. However, the easiest thing would be to simply allow the help window to be resized by the user.

I know this is a small little detail, but I think it should also be easily fixed. It really helps people with higher screen resolutions... like me and my good old IBM T221.
