The default font is too small on my screen at the resolution I have it, so I like to reset the font to size 12, but it appears I have to do this everytime I launch the program. How do I make it remember my preferences?

Go to Edit->Preferences->Editor, make the changes, click OK, close the editor and reopen. The preferences will be saved.

The problem arises here because if you use Format->Font instead to configure, the settings only apply to that session.
