    I notice you have changed the font to Segoe. My user Base is still mainly Windows XP. Is there a safe fallback built in in the Theming Mechanism?
    What's the best way to configure MS Sans Serif as the Font throughout if the App is not on Vista/Windows 7, Even if Segoe UI is installed with Office 2007?

    Hello erwin,

    In order to change the Font of the whole ControlDefault theme, please follow these steps:
    1. Open Visual Style Builder and select File >> Export Built-in Themes. This option will export all available predefined themes as theme packages.
    2. In Visual Style Builder select File >> Open Package and select ControlDefault.tssp file.
    3. In the Repository window, find the repository items related to SegoeUI font set their Font property to Microsoft Sans Serif.
    4. Save the package and load it in your project as described here.

    Sincerely yours,

    Is the response in 2010 still valid for 2012?
