PSPad uses nonproportional fonts. If you want to play with fonts, use Word.
You asked the same before as I remember.

To expand on this topic:

Because PSPad is a text editor, not a WYSIWYG editor with lots of formatting like Word, people use it to create format-free documents.

The text you select in PSPad ONLY affects how the files look here; Notepad and Word will continue to use their own defaults.

There are two common uses for text editors: reading text files quickly without launching something like MS Office, and writing text where line spacing and column alignment are the only formatting possible (usually programming code). Only proportional fonts preserve column alignment, so text editors generally only allow these fonts.
