    Deprecated.
    since 3.0 not longer in use, no longer supported
    This font field editor implements chaining between a source preference store and a target preference store. Any time the source preference store changes, the change is propagated to the target store. Propagation means that the actual value stored in the source store is set as default value in the target store. If the target store does not contain a value other than the default value, the new default value is immediately effective.
    Since:
    2.0
