Has anyone else had trouble with IDLE? (IDLE 2.5.4, Python 1.2.4) Can't change the tiny text size (changed font options don't stick) and the stack viewer won't come up (OSX10.7.5)

Hi Cindy, That Python version does not look right at all. On Ubuntu the Python version and the IDLE version are the same. Python versions are currently around 2.7.3 and 3.3.0. Perhaps you should head over to and get the 2.7.3 version for OS 10.6 or higher ( Disclaimer: I do not have a mac at all. So I may be wrong... Hope this might help in someway.

Looking for something else?
