Archicad suddenly changes working font

I've been working in Archicad for 7 years and I've never had such case. Archicad changed font style of workspace. I have no idea how it happened and how to return it back.

I'm not sure if this isn't an operating system setting. I'm not aware that you can change that font in Archicad. To me on WIN10 it looks like it is just using Segoe for everything (the default WIN10 font),

 

You would have to change a registry setting to even touch this font setting.

Yes, that is not an Archicad font setting.

It is a system font.

Maybe there is a Registry key (plist on Mac?) that controls this.

But I am not sure.

 

I don't know of any settings in Archicad that can change this.

 

Are other programs affected?

I found these keys in the registry.

Of course this is in Windows OS.

If you alter anything here, do so at your own risk.

 

Maybe you have deleted the Segoe UI font from you system and it is just substituting something else?

Now I remember, I just installed one font on computer. And that font became the system font for Archicad. How can I change it back?

no, other programs are not affected. I found a solution by the way. but it is strange. Archicad has used the recent font I installed for Microsoft Word use. and then I uninstalled it and the Archicad working font has returned back to normal.

I haven't deleted Segoe font, yes I checked for that. I found a solution by the way. but it is strange. Archicad has used the recent font I installed for Microsoft Word use. and then I uninstalled it and the Archicad working font has returned back to normal.

Thank you. I found a solution by the way. but it is strange. Archicad has used the recent font I installed for Microsoft Word use. and then I uninstalled it and the Archicad working font has returned back to normal.
