The first time you opened Verbum 8, you may not have noticed that the default font received an upgrade. It’s a subtle change, however, you may have noticed and wondered how you can switch back to the previous font (or switch to something completely different).

To access the Text Display options, click Tools > Utilities > Program Settings (you can also click Tools and begin typing “program” in the search box or type “program settings” in the Go box). Once you have opened Program Settings, scroll down to Text Display.


You will notice several different display options in this section, but the font selections are the ones at the top. Expand the dropdown menu for Default Resource Font to view all of the available options (there are many).

Below the default font for Verbum 8, you’ll see Default (Verbum 7). Selecting this font will revert the default resource font to the one used in Verbum 7.

Tips: A lot of work has gone into creating and curating fonts for a variety of purposes. So, when you select a font, consider how you intend to read the text. For example, sans serif fonts are typically best for digital viewing, whereas serif fonts are often preferred for print.
