They are seperated so you don't have to chose the same font.
As of now the font thing (control-center one) has options for desktop
and applications. The application setting affects the menu bars of all
The desktop option, which does the same as changing the preference from
inside of nautilus, affects only the nautlius side panels, but not
nautilus's inside or the desktop. I would think that setting the
desktop setting SHOULD affect the inside of nautilus (like view as icons
and stuff) and especially the desktop. However, there is not a way to
customise the fonts of them at the moment.
I think it would make sense for me to be able to chose the font inside
there too, no?
