Where do I set the default font for the datawindow wizards & painter
to use? I thought I had set it with system options but it still
showed arial.

Thanks,

Data, Heading and Label fonts are table specific. You set them using the
properties sheet for the table in the DB Painter. They are read by the
DWO objectlayout generator when a new DWO is created

So then this would be a change to a database default setting?
Thank you for answering, Yakov (and for asking, SPD).
This has bugged me for 15 years....

- Open the DB Painter
- Either in the Objects treeview, or in the Object Layout pane, select a
table
- In the properties pane, there are tabpages for Data Font, Heading Font and
Label Font
- These are stored in the pbcat* prefixed system tables that are created by
PB
when the first user with the appropriate rights connects.

These tables used to be referred to as the Powersoft repository.
