Sheesh, I've tried everything. I want to change the default font to Arial, rather than Times Roman.
I open the normal template, I select the style and modify it. I save my changes to the template. I close abiword, restart it, and no arial.
Instead, I reopened the normal template document, set the font via the drop-down menu, saved the template. I close abiword, reopen it and it's still Times Roman.
Why the heck should this be so difficult? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
You need to adjust the document's Normal style as that is what default uses:
Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
I did all that, tried it again just now. Save the template. But when I close abiword, and then reopen the app, the selection doesn't stick. I'm back to Times Roman.
Thanks for the help; I'll need to try something else.
I tried it once more, and this time it worked. Thanks for the help -- I think I can limp along now with abiword .
I've tried it six times and it still does not work. I've tried ediing the normal.awt manually but to no avail. It just doesn't seem to pick up from the template at all? Version 2.6.5.
You probably did not do well the point 8. Save it as an AbiWord Template, namely as "normal.awt" in the directory "AbiWordPortable\App\AbiSuite\templates\normal.awt"
The computer will ask: Do you want to replace existing "normal.awt". Yo must tell YES
