    Notes: 

    • The new default font is applied in the current view only. To use the font settings of this view in new projects, you can use the Organizer to copy that view into the global file.

    • To apply the default font to elements that were formatted individually, you can clear their current format. Select the elements you want to change, click Clear on the Edit menu, and then click Formats.

    • The Font and Font Size boxes on the Formatting toolbar do not reflect the text style settings. You can use these boxes to specify fonts for individual elements.
