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.
