    Font settings not part of themes?

    If I set up a theme, and as part of that I adjust font sizes, bolding etc., and then save it for sharing, why don't the font settings "go along for the ride?"

    It seems I always have to set each user's fonts after importing the theme.

    Am I missing or forgetting to do something here?

    Do the fonts get saved in an older OS such as Win7?

    It's been several monthssince I did it in "7", Joe, but my recollection was/is that yes, they did get saved. Sounds, fonts, wallpapers...all got saved.

    I thought you had import some Win7 theme files. What do they show?

    I did / do, Joe. I originally started doing that because, at least in the early betas, I didn't see a way to change the background color -- at least not to tone down the blue. So, I went back to W-7, set up the theme, and exported it for sharing. I had / have used that theme ever since, re-saving / exporting it if any changes were / are made.

    In W-7 the fonts were always part of what was saved and then restored. In W-10, though, colors, icons, pointers are all saved, but the font settings -- desktop, icons, folders all seem to have to be re-selected and set any time there is a new build and I then re-import the latest theme.

    I'm surprised that the fonts don't go along with the theme. It's not as if it takes a great deal of time or effort to adjust the fonts each time, but still...

    This may seem of less importance, but those settings are a big help to me since my vision is less than perfect. The bolding and sizing make a big difference.

    I suppose that in general you can't be sure that the font exists on the machine where the import is performed.
