I finally figured it out.
Yeah me! I don’t give up. I finally figured it out and how to change all my existing documents to my default font in one magical moment. Woo hoo!
So, I wrote a little help or knowledge base article. The title (drum roll please) …
How To Change The Default Font
This is not obvious. From the Scrivener Toolbar go to Tools.
Next, you click on Tools and select Options
When you select Options then select Editor
Then you have to select Font. It is the letter A below that I have circled in red. My goodness, what a hard thing to find.
That will get you to this window. Now see that little random italicized A? Yeah, that’s the button. That’s what they use as their symbol for FONT. It is not like any other software. So click the button. That takes you here. Pick your preferred font. This will only affect new work going forward.
If you want to change the default on existing work you need to select all the chapter and scenes you want to change and then go here.
That takes you to this window. Now you decide what you want to change.
In my case, I just converted everything. It is my understanding that if you run this feature on existing scenes (or other documents), it will keep font size, alignment, tabs and indents, spacing BUT NOT ANY ITALICS OR OTHER FONT FORMATTING. So use on existing stuff at your peril.
This event, this is how you change the default font and I call it”How To Change The Default Font In Scrivener For Windows.” Use at your own risk. Make a backup before you start in case you don’t get what you want. I am sharing my experience and make no guarantees that it will give you what you want. I worked for me.
