I just wanted to point out that clicking the "reset formatting" option
resets to whatever default was, which is good enough for me as a user.
Also, I inadvertently discovered a neat feature I didn't know existed:
by pasting formatted text into that box, I can instantly change my
formatting to follow whatever that formatting is. I would suggest that
maybe this feature can be exposed via a tooltip, since it seems very
handy and I didn't even know it existed. However, it seems like there
are no tooltips in the preferences window, so I'll assume there's a
reason for that. But that might be an avenue you could follow in your
attempts to make things smaller. I do appreciate this, as even on
larger screens sometimes the preferences pane feels a bit crowded.
Thanks for the great effort!
