I couldn't change it in windows options..

 

fontmgr.dll 

Is this file is responsible for fonts?

I'm not sure you can do it via Windows settings...

 

Have you tried changing the Font in "Icon" item in "Advanced Appearance Settings" under Windows Color and Apperance? 

 

Control Panel \ Personalization \ Window Color and Appearance

Maybe it's a settign that reside in windows registry, be carefull while messing with it and always do a backup before try new setting. Or at least annotate what you have changed.

I would start by changing keys in this part of the registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 107\PrefSets\DMCommon

Fiorini,

I have ST6. The DMCommon folder not exists.

Which folder then?

 

For pathfinder font is it?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 106\PrefSets\Options-Helpers\PathfinderTextMode

I don't know if a key that control text font exist, mine is only a suggestion to give it a try.

Simply search for "font" in the solid edge section in registry and see if there is something that work out.

No result guarantee :-)

Which values I should manage? Is there a some guideline or manual how to customize reigister for SE?

 

Thank you very much!
