Font selection not staying with the project

I recently created a WBT using Cp2017. IT switched my computer for a newer one and when I opened my project, the font set was all changed. While I still have access to the old computer, is there a hidden file somewhere I need to bring into my new computer that doesn't save with a project?

The project uses Object settings and Master Slides.

Please advise.

Each Captivate project uses a Theme. Templates are really buggy since CP9 and in the most cases unnecessary since all design is stored in the Theme. A theme has a Theme Color palette, all Object styles, Master slides, setup for Recording and for Skin. You can save the theme using the Themes menu, it will be a file with the extension cptm. 

In another project use the big button Themes, and look for the custom theme using the Browse icon in that dialog box with thumbnails.

Did you save the theme as a custom theme? Did you import that theme to the new system, and apply it to the project?

The project didn't use "themes", it was built using a template. Can I build a theme from within the project to capture these?
