"-f" or "-F"?  Both options exist.  In your original posting you
said you had used "-F U-P".  That will not give you what you
wanted.  "-F <dir>" searches a directory (or directory path) for
sub-directory <devname> (where devname is the name of the output
device) and the DESC file and font files.  Giving it the font name
won't work at all.  "-f<fam>" selects "<fam>" as the default font
family.  You'd still have to select the style of font -- R, I, B,
or BI.

As far as I know, any request or macro to change the font family
or style would override the command line option(s).  For myself,
I always set my fonts within my document; I've never used the
command line option.  (Actually, I set the default font in a style
sheet file, e.g.,, and then make any necessary
changes in the document proper.)


Be comforted, that in the face of all aridity and disillusionment,
And despite the changing fortunes of time,
There is always a big future in computer maintenance.
