Archy - Archaeology Assistant

419 - Initial state of Artifacts window doesn't obey visual settings

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Make a change to eg. font size/outline/font type in Artifacts window
2. Reload UI

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I would have expected the Artifact window to look according to the settings I've chosen.
However : Until you get fragments from digging, the Artifacts window displays the "default" font settings : Outlined, Font, Size
You can also force the Artifact window to obey the settings, by going into Artifact Frame configuration and clicking things on/off. This triggers a proper "refresh" and then it looks as you want it to instead of the "default look"

What version of the product are you using?
1.8.30

Do you have an error log of what happened?
No error reports generated

Please provide any additional information below.
It's not a big

    I've also been experiencing this issue forever. Normally I just toggle Archy off and back on by clicking the Broker icon twice, but I finally got tired of that and wrote a small addon to automate the process.

    I've gone ahead and made a mini-addon to automatically run the "fix" code 5 seconds after logging in. In case anyone else wants to use it, you can find it here:

    It's very unlikely I will spend any more time trying to find the actual cause of the problem in Archy's code, or commit any fixes to Archy itself, so until someone who actually knows what's going on in that mess feels like fixing it, this will have to do.

    (Also fixes the issue with the dig site window failing to appear when TomTom is enabled, as described in ticket #493.)
