Tips for Android developer: An SDK Target must be specified

I have met a strange problem when I used Eclipse to create a new Android project today, it remained me “An SDK Target must be specified” and Android SDK targets selection list in “Build Target” window “disappeared”.

Searched by Google, most of answers for this “An SDK Target must be specified” problem showed that I should go to “Windows->Android SDK and AVD Manager” in Eclipse and click on “Installed Packages” and then “Update All”. But that’s not my problem, I have used the Eclipse to program with Android long ago and every thing is OK till today. So I continued to search and finally on the Rowan Crane’s Blog I found the resolved method, it is just to change the font size in Eclipse:

Window / Preferences / General / Appearance / Basic / Colours and Fonts

Change “Text Font” and “Dialog Font” to a smaller value, dropping from 10 to 8 or smaller number maybe helped.

The “An SDK Target must be specified” problem likes a joke Eclipse played with me.
