I have a long string property (>255) defined on a page type. Since I don't want to change the value of the field using "an advanced editor" I decided to uncheck all editor properties (bold, italic, underline and so on), which left me with a simple textarea. However, when I write text in the textarea it seems to be using a default font-family of Courier New or equivalent.
Does anyone know where I can change that value, so that a textarea in the editor default uses Arial or some other sans-serif font?
The textarea font is set via css (so its nothing to do with EPiServer as such).
You would need to update the textarea.epitextareaeditor css rule in /App_Themes/Default/Styles/system.css to define font-family:arial;, though I'm not sure about cross-browser support for setting a text-area font. It certainly works in modern browsers.This file is served from a VPP mapping (look in web.config - the actual path is something like c:\program files\episerver.......)Be careful - if you change the rule in this location - it will effect every EPiServer site that is hosted on the same box (as every instance, by default shares those files). There are ways around this mind. See http://world.episerver.com/Blogs/David-Knipe/Dates/2010/5/Customising-the-EPiServer-UI/ for a walkthrough.
I'll look into this.
The company I work for only has a single EPiServer site up and running, so maybe I can change the CSS-rule directly.
