How can I set a font for Runtime Dialog box?

Apparently the setting in Object Style Manager is ignored for some obscure reason...

As you can see: Arial is selected, the change applied, yet both preview and real box still use Times New Roman. Why?

//UPDATE: some fonts are accepted by Captivate... for example Andalus, Georgia, Verdana... But not Arial, Courier New nor Trebuchet.

Which output? That setting seems normally only functional for HTML output.

What do you mean by "which output"?

I will be publishing the contents as HTML 5 and both previewing and publishing the content results in Times New Roman font when I choose Arial.

Using Veranda seems to work and is a sans-serif font.

This is not the only problem--Captivate uses the Runtime Dialog when displaying messages like Submit All. Sometimes the buttons on these dialogs don't display correctly. It would be nice to have more control over the CSS in these things.

 

Is there a workaround (e.g., drop in CSS or Javascript) that will fix this?
