Migrated library, lost fonts from comments

First I must tell you what happened.

Changed HD, reinstalled Windows XP, Calibre and lots of other stuff.
Copyed libraries from old HD to new location.
Pointed Calibre to the right place.
Re-downloaded all plugins (drive letter is now different).
Copied Calibre settings from old HD Application Data folder to the new one.

So far so good - all books seem to be present, all libraries also, almost all settings also (I've strong feeling that I had more than 1 view in View Manager of the main library, second library has all 3 views like before). Must use it for a few weeks to catch more differences.

BUT - All comments have lost the Arial font. Colors and bold/italics are in place, but font is bigger and uglier than before.
When I added new book and pasted summary to comments, it appeared as before - Arial.

How can I make all the comments to Arial in one swoop? I really do not want to go pasting through thousands of metadata screens.

What happened? Could it be because I installed newer version of Calibre (8.41)? I don't remember what version was on the old HD, something from November.

Hopefully somebody knows where Calibre keeps that default font and how to change it.

Did you copy your configuration folder to new HD?

Lots of settings are save there although I do not know about metadata fonts.

You are talking about the comment below the picture of the book ?? There is a setting in the options-menu, where you can configure the font to use in general. The same font should be used for any text in the form. I wonder that you don't find it.

Other formattings such as font-weight, font-style etc. are stored with the comment in a file named "metadata.opf" in the book path. If you paste from a source like Winword, some local font-style ist stored here as well.

Right, exactly the text below cover picture.
What options-menu? Where? How can I access it? I searched all places in Edit Metadata window and nowhere could I see anything font-related...

It worked! Strange thing is, I even looked in 'Look and Feel' but still managed to not notice the big button.

I was thrilled to find I knew something about calibre that could help someone else. I'm usually the one asking for help.
