Post Allow global font substitution to user modules
Your module properties action/settings tab allows any font to be changed globally in a user module topic tree. Oftentimes I have wished that you could provide the same option for the topics themselves (i.e., the text inside the entire module, every topic.) This would be much easier for the user than selecting 100 topics individually, selecting all the text in each, and changing the font manually 100 times. If it is not too much trouble, please allow that option in a future revision of TheWord.

Post Re: Allow global font substitution to user modules
I have discussed a similar request/pet peeve and it is just not feasible. The guide to formatting modules is a good guide that some choose to ignore, which is fair enough. So we get Times New Roman 12 point, which renders the same size as Tahoma 10 point. So when I choose to use my default font of Tahoma, rather than the font defined in the module I get an apparent 12 point....

So what I do is change the font and size by using this util. I would be careful if the module has images as they have been know to disappear. Not sure why this util is not on the site, unless I missed it. So here it is. Use with care. Keep backups.

Woa, Jon, that utility looks very handy. Thanks a million.
I assume that nobody has written out any instructions about how to use it, so I will just use test modules to see what happens. It looks like it changes fonts globally throughout any module, which is the main thing I wanted, indeed. Thanks so much.

There aren't any instructions, or support with this util.
Yes, it is a global replace, that works most times.
Note that if the file is just an e-Sword import, that any verse refs will no longer work as popups and need to be properly detected from within theWord properties page.
Always keep a backup of the original file for when you discover later on that something is missing/wrong with the module.
