I think it was me who asked about this, because my dialogue boxes are far
too large! I've done what you suggested using Softy - I just used Arial for
the sake of testing. I called the file arial.fon, and added the system font
setting "SystemFont=arial.fon" but this only affected the title bar font.
How would I use the [FontSubtistutes] section to change the dialogue box font?
