    Hi Mark!

    Welcome to the Community!

    BarTender will always optimize printer code, this means it will use a device font by default.

    However, I suggest creating components with our preferred settings (this means we could have more than one default font-type, which is really useful):

    Here is a sample of how we would go around doing this:

    1.  Let's start editing the text properties to suit your needs (for example, Arial Bold 20 Point Size):

    2. Now, let's right-click on the text, and then click on "Create as a component":​​

    3. This way we can have more than one "default" text object type, which can easily be dragged and dropped onto any label from now on; in essence, we have created our first default font; and now we can have as many as we want. We just need to drag and drop them from the Components side menu:

    And that would be all! Please, feel free to reach us again if you have further questions regarding this topic, or create a new one if you'd like assistance with something entirely different.
