In a part, the Font face and size options in Style => Header, Footer => Footer Text have no effect. No matter which font or size, it seems remain at the default value: FreeSerif and 8pt, or the corresponding values in the score. The Ok or Apply to all parts buttons make no difference.

In other word, if we want to change the font and size of the footer of a part, we have to do from the score.

Still occurs in 3.4.2 and also 3.5 nightly (each of them little different behaviour) /Ubuntu Studio 20.04/

Lets say, we have serif by default. When you change footer style in part (for example to sans) , it reamins unchanged in part footer.

3.4.2 In Format - Style - Text Styles - Footer, it shows "sans". If you switch to score and than Format - Style - Text Styles - Footer it also shows changed value ("sans"), but in fact, it is still "serif", it was not changed in score, only in part. Sheet music, it remained unchanged (serif in both, score and parts).

3.5 Format - Style - Text Styles - Footer shows correct values (serif in score and sans in part), but in sheet music, it is always that one, which is set in score, in part too (serif).
