MacMegaPOV, it remembers the last font and size, so that you don't have
to change it every time again.

paste when an image is rendering in the background? Unfortunately with
OS 8.6 the rendering has priority and everything else will go slow.
(Only from OS 9.2 on you can use multithreading)

You could try to set the image to pause while editing another scene.

  i had to read the manuel again :-) in fact, i set my defaut font/size
  to monaco/9. when i open, for exemple "colors.inc" file, chicago 12 is used.

While the MacMegaPOV behavior certainly is the correct behavior for a word
processor, it as certainly is the wrong behavior for a text editor. All Mac
text editors set the correct precedent (font controlled by application, not
a file) as well.

Some of them let you choose, like the CW IDE.
To make everybody happy, the final version of MacMegaPOV will do the
same.
