Hi, Melanie:

Here's the problem, according to my quick tests and examining MIF files:

* In a new file, based on standard FM templates, the default table 
format A has no footing row, and the paragraph format catalog has  no 
definition for CellFooting. However, in the MIF file, you can see 
that the format A table definition has a statement to use the 
CellFooting paragraph format for cells in a footing row.

* Adding a footing row to a format A table creates CellFooting tags 
in the cells, but CellFooting is not in the paragraph catalog, so the 
tag information area (left end of status bar) displays *CellFooting.
    I think the CellFooting paragraph format is cloned from the 
existing CellHeading format, but it might be generated from some 
other source.

* Adding the CellFooting paragraph format to the catalog locks in a 
definition for it.

I think you can accomplish what you want by creating a definition for 
the CellFooting paragraph format in the catalog, using a font you 
have. Table footing rows you create will look in for CellFooting and 
if it exists in the catalog, they will use the font you have 
specified. I believe that this approach will preclude FM trying to 
find the hidden, elusive, maddening, "ghost," location of 
TimesNewRoman and variations.

HTH
