[Done][5.72] New default gadget font on Windows

Post by Little John »

On Windows, the default gadget font in prior PB versions was MS Shell Dlg, 8 pt.
Now in PB 5.72 LTS it is Segoe UI, 9 pt, see Font Problem with 5.72.

This will affect most of our Windows GUI programs that were created with PB versions prior to 5.72, and has to be documented in the History section of the Help.
It should also be mentioned in the Migrating from an old version of PureBasic section, with an additional note about how to set the old default font for compatibility:

Please excuse my flawed English. My native language is PureBasic.
