is there a way to set the defautl font for a report?
I only found "font." within any object such aus TppLabel.

Opening a report now in RB17.02 the font is Tahoma, but switches to
Arial after selecting a label.

    Hi Carsten,

    The "default" font when you place a new control on a report is
    determined in one of two ways.

    1. rbuilder.ini: The Report Designer checks the rbuilder.ini file for
    the last previously used font properties and uses those for the next
    component added.

    2. If the font properties have not yet been saved to the .ini file or it
    cannot be accessed, then a standard TFont is created using the Delphi
    Application.DefaultFont properties. This of course defaults to Tahoma.
