Hi

I've just update a site form Q3 2008 to Q1 2010.

Our users are quite unhappy about the new font (Segoe UI) and find it difficult to read.

If I wanted to change it to something else across all controls is there an easy way to do this?  I can't seem to find one.

I'm reluctant to use a custom skin as having tried this it's introduced several problems with other aspects of the skining and I really want to avoid customising/hacking the site to fit a specific version of radcontrols that may change in the future.

Thanks

Andy

Hi Andy,

The easiest way is to use the following CSS rule:

*
{
      font-family: arial, sans-serif  !important;
}


This will enforce the specified font family on everything on the page.

Thanks for the swift response.

That's worked almost perfectly - I just had to re-style some non-telerik bits to fit with the font now being Arial for everything!
