i have never know the Properties box to show the correct font.   For that
reason, I don't use it.  There seems to be a real disconnect with what is
shown, with respect to fonts between the Story Editor and the Properties box
text field.  I have never been able to tell which has precedence, either, of
I avoid the Properties box for text/font activities like it holds the source
of plague.
