Thanks Allan!  I tried to move the fontName and fontSize out to the global level, but the font is not changed.  I have two different folders with two different fontName and fontSize in each folder as the followings. Both folders open up in "Monaco", the default font.  Something is not working right.  I noticed a "-" sign icon on some files (including the .tm_properties file) and folders.  What does it mean?

In folder A:

TM_GIT = "/usr/local/bin/git"

fontName = "Menlo"
fontSize = 12

[ "*.{txt,md,mdown,markdown}" ]
softWrap = true

In folder B:

fontName = "Monaco"
fontSize = 12

Some of the View menu settings are only read from .tm_properties when initializing the text view, and not when switching documents, so file-type specific settings will not work (yet).
