[BUG 12041] Appearance > Font Changes Without Approval

Unexpected: Font type changes without clicking on apply, possible reason explained below.

Expected: Do not alter font type unless I click on ‘Apply’.

Suggested Fix: Add default font settings to Project>Properties>Vision>Design

Ignition Version: 8.0.0-beta0 (b2018110602)
Java Version: 11.0.1+13-LTS
OS: Ubuntu 18.04 (Linux | amd64)
Environment: Designer
Module: Vision

Steps that resulted in the change of font type and details:

  1. Draw any component to a window
  2. Click on Appearance>Font Drop-down.
  3. Click on “Cancel” or “Apply” or anywhere on the screen that would close the font settings dialog box.

That causes the default “Tahoma, Bold, 11” setting to be replaced with whatever was current on the dialog box. This happens for the first time only on each component, simply because my Ubuntu 18.04 does not have Tahoma installed. However, even if it cannot find Tahoma in the list, at least it should not implement any changes to the current setting unless I click on apply.

(I simplified the language and used imperative verbs without the intent of being bossy and rude :slight_smile: )
