That's not what I said.  I changed every font to Arial in every file in
my book via MIF, using search/replace.  If I understand MIF, that should
have changed everything - Master Pages, Formats, etc.  Upon opening
those files, I got warnings that Frame was going to have to substitute
Times New Roman for Times.  Doing another MIF export, in several places
I found Times where I explicitly changed them to Arial.  Now this was
all before I discovered that fminit folder and its magical custom file.
That file was full of Times, so I assume that may be the source of my
trouble.  I'm not real clear yet on when that template takes precedence
or is applied to existing files.  I do see that it is documented in the
book, so I'll have to read up on that file.

Thanks for your help!

   Well, if you change something and then import formats from a file
that doesn't have the changes, you should expect the original settings
to be restored ...
