    Default Arrgghhh - I Dumped a System Font

    In an effort to speed things up, I took the advice found in various threads here to remove all unneeded fonts.

    And that resulted in my inadvertent removal of the system font NOF 11 uses for the currently active control panel. Which in turn has resulted in that panel using something else which is huge (pixel wise) and now the panel takes up nearly a third of the screen. Resizing it doesn't help because it squishes everything inside into an unrecognizable mashup.

    So. Does anyone know what that system font is called?

    Alternatively, does anyone know how to adjust the font currently in use on the active control panel?

    Not sure what the default was, but if you go to
    Tools;
    Options;
    Application,
    and select the Text tab,
    you can set the fonts used there. Just choose a different font. Verdana is
    one that will work well and has been around on windows for a very long time.
    I suspect the default was Times New Roman but don't quote me on that.

    HTH,

    Thanks, gents. Neither of those provided the needed relief. Nor did doing a fresh install of NOF 11.

    Trouble ticket in....

    How about a system roll back. you did create a restore point before editing your windows install didn't you? If not, see what your oldest restore point is. Some of the windows updates create a restore point when they install so you may not be too bad off. MAKE SURE you export your current site projects as templates before dong any roll back to avoid losing a LOT of work.
