Default font is not taking

Dear All,

I am having trouble to get the default font of CKEditor to Arial. It is taking default font as "Times New Roman" evn though i set it as 'Arial' in config.js file. And I've tried editing every available CSS but no luck. Even If the website uses Arial as its default, the editor seems to forcefully use the "Times New Roman". How do I fix this? I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Regards, Ravi Para

You need to set Arial in ckeditor/contents.css and clear browser's cache according to -'s-Cache?hc_location=ufi

font as "Times New Roman" evn though i set it as 'Arial' in config.js file

This only set default font for font dropdown label.

I strongly recommend upgrading to CKEditor 4.x as 3.x is no longer actively maintained.

Hi Team,

These are the setting in config.js file.

config.font_defaultLabel = 'Arial'; config.fontSize_defaultLabel = '12px'; *

Below is the body tag code from content.css file.

body {

/* Font */ font-family: Arial, Verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;

/* Text color */ color: #222;

/* Remove the background color to make it transparent */ background-color: #fff;


When we open the editor we are setting some default value. for ex : [THREAD ID :1-HDFD4KJ]

After placing the cursor on this text, it is showing default font as "Arial" only, but indeed this font is not "Arial". after sending mail, in ms-outlook it is showing as " Times New Roman". In source code, No styles are defined.

how can we resolve this issue.
