    Change all Fonts in WSB easily.

    I don't know if this has been posted before but here goes.

    -

    One of the feature request I've docced for WSB16 is a dialog to quickly replace all fonts. Until then there's another way (which is easy enough).

    Info: WSB removes the need of MUI files by adding all string resources in the resource directory of the msstyles. The property Font:Font is a string resource so it's in the string table, that's how we can easily modify the fonts.

    How to:

    Step 1: Save your progress in WSB if you're currently working on it and close WSB.

    Step 2: Open your theme in a resource hacker. I used Restorator 2007.



    Step 3: Navigate to the string resource and expand.



    Step 4: Drag/drop (or export) Neutral into Explorer.

    Step 5: Open Neutral.rc in a text editor. I used Notepad++.



    Step 6: Replace all instances of Segoe UI with your font.





    Step 7: Save Neutral.rc

    Step 8: Drag/Drop (or import) the new Neutral.rc from Explorer back into your resource hacker.

    Step 9: Save your theme.

    Step 10: Apply

    Thanks Panda, I have done this myself a couple of times for those who wanted the default font back but never documented it so thanks for posting this tutorial, the new option for the fonts in 1.6 sounds really good, will be looking forward to that.
