I know this may be one of those ...Duhhhhh questions, but I am new to ACADM (2008) and can't seem to figure out how to change the default text to Arial form Romans and get it to stay.
I have created a custom dwt and everything else works fine except for the default text.
What do you say O`Mighty gurus of CAD???

I have ABS 2006 (now MEP) and i would think it would be similar.  All you have to do is go to Format -- Text Style -- then the option to change your faunt is in this area.  You can apply this to a certain profile so when ever you are using that profile your default text will be what ever you changed it to.  If you need more info on creating a profile let me know
Also you can create a specific Text style within the Format --- Text Style menu.dlittle2008-03-04 16:53:38

That is what I have been trying to do, but once i shut down the program and open it back up (after saving it to the template file) it reverts back to Romans.

i was able to get the Text Style to remain when opening and closing the drawings by creating a new Template file (DWT).  Check and see if it is on the scroll down menu of the Text Style manager under --- Format ---- Text Styles.  I am not sure how to turn it into your default text style, so you may have to scroll down to it and select it when ever you create new text

Yes I have it set to open our template.  It was working, but a-las, now it is not.

I opened my template file change the font style in every location I could think of and then save the template, but I still get the same results when I open a new romans instead of areial style text.
