I'd thought there was already a request for this, but I couldn't turn it
up so I just filed one:
It would be helpful if all objects which have a textFont
property could have a useSystemFont property. When true,
the current OS font and size are applied.
The same inheritance rules that apply to the textfont
properties would apply here, and any object which has a
textFont or textSize specified would of course have
these local properties take precedence.
I've cc'd Lynn here since he's expressed a keen interest in smoothing
