Applied Parameters: None


This feature allows you to change the font used for one or more selected design objects, where applicable.

Such attributes for one or more selected objects can be changed using the Properties panel. Only those attributes common to all selected objects will be presented.


This feature is available in the Schematic Editor only from the Formatting toolbar.

Access the Font Name feature from the Formatting toolbar.Access the Font Name feature from the Formatting toolbar.


First, ensure that the object whose font you wish to change is selected in the main design window.

Use the drop-down to choose from a list of font types that can be applied to the selected design object. As you scroll through and choose different fonts from the list, the font of the object's text will change accordingly.


  1. This feature will only be available if applicable to the currently selected object. That is, it has a Font property.
  2. The drop-down list is populated with TrueType and OpenType (a superset of TrueType) fonts found in the \Windows\Fonts folder. Note that the list will only include entries for detected (and uniquely named) root fonts. For example, Arial and Arial Black will be listed but Arial Bold, Arial Bold Italic, etc., will not.
  3. When multiple design objects are selected, only those formatting features common to all will be available for use. Therefore, in order to effectively change the formatting attribute of a group of selected objects, make sure they all support that formatting feature.
