Change default font in project

Yvonne
Advocate

Is it possible to change all the fonts in a project to 1 font? like a project font the overrides everything?

We have been changing the fonts in objects and labels etc and saving them favourites but there are so many and we might miss something....

Short answer  - no.

Unfortunately, there is no one master font override.

Lots of items are set to "Project Font"
So there should be a Project font somewhere? 

Can you show a screen capture of where you are seeing this 'Project Font' setting?

I am not aware of any such setting.

When I select a new font, I can't seem to go back to "project font"
Just seems to be a placeholder. But probably not a bad idea to have a "project font" and could change all fonts at once that reference it.

That looks like a 3rd party object (CadImage or Central Innovation as they are now called?).

They do (I believe) have a default font that you can set for all of their library parts (I do the same with my library).

But it only affects the font used in objects, not as actual text or dimensions in Archicad.

Usually there is a Model View Option setting to control the font and the objects are all set to use the MVO setting or maybe in this case 'Project Font'.

Thanks good to know. 

Could be good to have a text override like a Graphics Override but I guess it is easy enough to select all with filters
