Is there any way to change the default font? e.g., having Cambria selected whenever I open vue?

Also, in 2.0a how can I make nodes the same way as in 1.5., i.e., with a single click, not dragging... Now it's difficult to make same size nodes.

Thanks

PS: a third question :)
Is there any way to export to a network-friendly format such as the network package, used for example in R: http://www.sourcekeg.co.uk/cran/

I'd also like to know how the default font can be changed. On a Mac, Arial isn't the best choice, IMHO. In a previous VUE version, I resorted to keeping a dummy/template/sample text item visible in a corner of the canvas, and I'd copy+edit it whenever I needed a new text item. (I used the same kluge for geometric shapes with text content.) Ideally, there'd be a user-editable properties sheet, i.e. a file listing key-value pairs. (The Mac version does have one, info.plist, but it's apparently not for "internal" preferences like default font.) Thanks

My apologies -- I just came across the cmd-t shortcut (I'm not sure what it is on non-Macs, probably ctrl-t) and discovered that it respects my current font/fontsize. I was wrong to think that VUE wouldn't let me preserve my format preferences within a session.

I don't think this affects the desirability of a properties sheet, but in fairness to the developers I wanted to mention it.
