HI:
    Today,I met with a strange problem:No matter how I do,I cant't change the fonts in the menus.Sometimes in order to meet the need of our users,we have to enlarge the fonts of the menus,and their default font seems have been fixed.To my disappointment,there doesn't exist a property 'font' like other components in the mainmenu component.
    I also tried to enlarge the form's font so that the menu's font would change for the sake of inheritance,but
failed again.What shall I do?Hope to get your kind help.Thank you.
