That is intentional. You select the screen font there and that font is used by operating system, not by MUI. But the operating system (graphics.library, intuition.library) does not support the extended MUI font styles. Hence they are omitted from that requester. Only normal MUI objects inside a MUI application can make use of these extended styles, nothing else.

If there is a bug somewhere, then it would be the visibility of the "Text" and "Outline" buttons, because these two colors cannot be used by the operation system either.

In 6602:

  • Pubscreenadjust.c: hide the "Text" and "Outline" color buttons in case a font for system use is to be selected. AmigaOS cannot handle the extended font styles of MUI. This closes #447.
