    Hi

    Just go into the Text Style Dialog Box and change it there.

    If you use a Template file (DWT) to start New drawings set Style Name "Standard" to use the Font Name you require within that.

    Have a good one, Mike

    I'm actually looking for a way to change the default font at start-up with "drawing1.dwg" without using a template or manually changing the style each time.

    I'd recommend adding a LISP routine to your startup that would check to see if the text style was what you wanted and change it if it isn't. It shouldn't be that tough even for a beginning LISPer. I can give you a little more detail if that sounds like what you're looking for.

    By default Autocad uses the template drawing "acad.dwt" at start-up with "drawing1.dwg". Modifing that file is the best way to set up text and dimension styles or layers, linetypes and blocks. Is there a reason you wouldn't want to use them?

    Hi

    Depends on the setting of system variable MEASUREINIT -

    0 = acad.dwt
    1= acadiso.dwt

    Personally I would go with Tom's suggestion, is easy to implement and maintain.....

    The following Technical Documents from the Autodesk web site might be of some interest -

    ID: TS47106 - Changes made to acad.dwt and acadiso.dwt are not displayed in new drawings created using Start from Scratch option

    ID: TS24235 - Defining a default drawing template file

    Have a good one, Mike
