Having been recreating my Amiga teenage years recently, when I should have been writing, this thread and ideal has resonated with me hugely.
Does anyone know if it's possible to get WordPerfect 4.1/5.0alpha to respect the Workbench system font if it's been altered via preferences? Much as I love the default topaz, I've found that in the rather higher resolution I'm using now that the slimmer topaz6 font is vastly preferable.
I've had no problem getting Workbench and the various cli applications to use a different default font, and I was hoping that WordPerfect would honour that. Instead, it sticks to its original topaz. I've tried various approaches, including ModePro font overriding, and even replacing the topaz font on the disk itself with a renamed topaz6, but WordPerfect is still stubbornly showing the original. I'm guessing that the font is hardcoded into the binary.
Still, if anyone knows, or can imagine, a trick that I might have missed to override or replace WordPerfect's base font then I'd love to hear it!
