You can only control them in a HTML panel (or in a Custom one). But as it is Java, you can probably hack yourself in...

You probably can't as it only contains the directory in which the font files are.

hi,
does this mean there is no way for changing the fonts of the text fields and in the install title and in other dialog boxes and i am bound to use the fonts provided by installanywhere.

There used to be a way to do it using custom code, but I'm not sure if it is still working. What is your IA version?

If you read the thread linked in my previous post, I think it is pretty clear that there is no way to control the fonts in the standard IA panels. The only way to do is to use custom code (and maybe recreate standard panels via custom code). As I've also stated in that thread, one can find standard IA panels that do even not share the same fonts! So I'm afraid only someone from Macrovision can say what fonts are used for each panel.
