Changing default ABT font from System to control panel dialog font

robert.whitefield
If you place a widget using composition editor and don't specify the font, it defaults to System, the non-scalable bitmapped font.

With higher-DPI displays, Windows now defaults to 125% scaling and substitutes a larger System version. This font causes label/button text to be truncated throughout my client's application.

What I want is for widgets to instead default to whatever the dialog font is set to in the control panel, e.g. Segoe UI 11.

I was excited to see most of the work has been done for me in EtWindow class>>getDefaultFontName, but I'm not at all clear how to substitute this font by default for all widgets? 

Many thanks for any tips.

Bob

No answer here, but wanting to keep this thread alive, since I have seen the same problem, though hadn't pursued the cause (thanks).
