    I think Its number 3. Go to your settings and try different ones and you'll find it.

    Or use the font icon and size boxes right above the post box.

    Yeah, I can match the size, but the font style is what Iím looking for. I say this because Iím a bit OCD when it comes to posting from sources and then typing my comments. I donít like nieces fonts and sizes: they look messy.

    Depending on what you are copying and pasting, the forum software sucks with formatting. I go to great lengths to edit type sizes, spacing, and such, then when you hit "post", the forum software screws up all your work.

    Yeah, when I'm putting together a longer post, I do it on Word and then copy and paste. I'd like to just highlight and set the font and type size at once and then post. So I'm trying to figure out exactly what the default font is... You can't highlight it and expect it to show in the font window, because it doesn't, hence all the questions about it.

    When I copy and paste any word posted in the forum into my word processing software the font is defined as: Verdana;Arial;Tahoma;Calibri;Geneva;sans-serif Font size: 11.2

    I always have to show the codes and pull out the font codes etc. An engineer I use a lot told me that Tahoma is the most readable font based on some study. You can't argue with an engineer - so I didn't.

    I wish the SW would accept WebP photos. I always have to convert them to jpg.
