Toggle whether or not the selected frame should auto-raise. Auto-raise means that every time you move the mouse onto the frame, it raises the frame.

Toggle whether or not the selected frame should auto-lower. Auto-lower means that every time you move the mouse off the frame, the frame moves to the bottom of the stack of X windows.
Specify font font as the principal font for the selected frame. The principal font is used for all text displayed in the frame, except when a face (see Faces) specifies a different font to use for certain text. See Font X, for ways to list the available fonts on your system.
You can also set a frame's principal font through a pop-up menu. Press S-Mouse-1 to activate this menu.
In Emacs versions that use an X toolkit, the color-setting and font-setting functions don't affect menus and the menu bar, since they are displayed by their own widget classes. To change the appearance of the menus and menu bar, you must use X resources (see Resources X). See Colors X, regarding colors. See Font X, regarding choice of font.
