How to generate forms without windows system fonts (with userdefined fonts)?

(Doc ID 1367308.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 27, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Designer - Version: and later   [Release: Designer 10g and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle Designer seems to take 'Windows-System font' settings into account to calculate the Width of Field in the generated Oracle Form.
The system font depends on the OS:
- on Windows XP this is Tahoma
- on Windows 7 this is Segoe.

How to change this behaviour in order for Oracle Designer to generate the same font on all windows machine independent from 'Windows System fonts'?
