Update Live Writer to new Segoe UI font

After the update to the Windows Live Internet Services last week (Dec 3), the default font used for entries to Live Spaces was changed to the Segoe UI font for readability and tidiness.

You have to do a little bit of work to have Live Writer use the new font by default by getting Live Writer to update its theme from your online Live Space – here are the steps (which only take a couple of minutes to complete):

  • Start Live Writer
  • On the Weblog menu choose Edit Weblog settings…
  • Choose Editing from the left-hand pane of the dialogue box
  • Choose the Refresh button
  • Wait until your Live Spaces theme is downloaded to Live Writer
  • You now have the Segoe UI font as your default font in Live Writer, just as it is on your Live Space.

Note: if you have changed your default font before the Live Spaces update of last week, your choice is preserved so you probably won’t need to do anything.
