# System.Font

LabTalk Object Type:

Utility

The font object is a sub-object of the system object. The font object properties allow you to read and alter font-related settings which are set in the OPTION.CNF file. These settings can also be accessed in the Options dialog box. It should be noted that setting these properties through script does not trigger the save as Origin's startup Options dialog, so the value in Options.CNF is not overwritten.
