drawing marker default font

Does anyone know how to set the defaut font for the drawing markers to a font of their choosing?  Currently I have to select each marker and change the font from *Roman to my desired font. Is there a way to set the font to a default?  If so, I can't seem to find it.

Thanks

Do you before using "Markers", set the parameters in the local menu? If I set the font here this is for all markers.

re: default Font.

In V19 I tried changing "System_Defaults" (Default Font) and "Drawing_Defaults" (Text Font) in TurboCAD Explorer, but it didn't have any effect that I could see (even after a program restart). I did find that the Font chosen in the "Mark Properties" (Local Menu) was retained when starting a New from Scratch drawing or from a Template.

For me in V18.2 Pro changes made ​​in the "System_Defaults" (Default Font) and "Drawing_Defaults" (Text Font) remained after a program restart.

Hi Marek. It's got to be some screw loose in the V19 64Bit edition. The thing that got me was the Font for the Markers was already Arial; what I set both font listing to when setting up my defaults. I'm not sure why it wouldn't change in Markers, but Text and Dimensions did.

Hi John. "Markers" has own font settings, and I think that it is independent of setting the whole drawing. For me "Markers" remember the last font modification . After restarting the program, I see that font in the "Markers"  is so, like it remained at the closing of the program.
