Project doesn't seem to define a default font preference since 0.8.2.
Since Project extends TXMResult it searches in all preference nodes when retrieving a preference.
Therefore the chars engine font preference is used import Font section form.
Also the charts engine font preference is in in JFace StringConverter format (?|Font name|size|style|?|?|...) so it may lead to problem during import.
And in the Font section we can see the font in JFace format, e.g. "1|Lucida Sans Unicode|11.0|1|WINDOWS|1|-16|0|0|0|400|0|0|0|0|3|2|1|34|Lucida Sans Unicode;"



1) set a default font preference in TBXPreference : "" should work -> nope the alternate nodes are tested before

2) Fix the alternate node qualifiers of the TXMPreferences class -> general fix for the other default preference values

3) Avoid keys with the same names
3a) use prefixes -> may brake inheritence
3b) rename the identified keys :
  • ChartsEnginePreferences.FONT = "font" -> "chart_font"
