Add an option to change the default font in all fields in all scores from Free Serif to anything else you want.

See original discussion in As I observed there,

FWIW, though, while I support the idea of making it easier to change all text fonts at once, I don't think Preferences is the right place to do it. Aside from being counterintuitive to anyone who knows fonts are controlled by *style* settings and not preferences, it also wouldn't be nearly as clear how the setting should affect existing scores, or templates that (rightly so) specify other fonts as their defaults.
I think it should be more of an *action* to take on a score, changing all text styles *for that score* to the specified score. You could then save that style sheet and make it the default for *new* scores using the existing Preferences option for that, also you can make whatever templates you want using those style settings and then create new scores from that template.
