Hmm... PATH is a very old command.  I wonder if it does not understand
any but the default font!?  I wouldn't think so, but...

Questions:

- have you tried specifying any other fonts for your PATH execution?

  If yes, did any work?  If not, then my suspicion that PATH can only
  use the default font would be verified.

- do you get the same failure if you specify the font using the FONT=
  keyword in a PATH execution?  (FONT= is a global keyword, so it
  can be specified in any McIDAS command invocation.)

I have never run into this problem, but, quite frankly, I rarely
use PATH, and when I have used it, I never tried to change the
font used.  If you continue to have problems, or if you really need
for the font to be settable, I will dig into the code more.

Cheers,

Tom
