I've spent quite a few hours on this.
A lot of black screens. :)

Here are the exact steps:
1. Opened the theme in WSB.
2. Changed either some images or the fonts under "Fonts, Colors, & System Metrics".
3. Saved the the theme and exited WSB.
4. Opened the msstyles file in Restorator 2018 and replaced every instance of "Segoe UI" with "Tahoma" NonAntialiased, saved and exited.
5. Reopned the theme in WSB.

Here is the interesting result:
Testing the theme in WSB, it seems to be working properly: all the fonts are "Tahoma" NonAntialiased.
If I stop testing, modify anything and save - WSB asks if I'd like to use the theme. Selecting "Yes", I get an error: "The theme can not be applied".
Applying the the theme via Windows Settings, I get a black screen.

Thank you. I appreciate your help.

This only works with msstyles already saved in WSB.

Open the msstyle in a resource editor
Go to String > Neutral
You'll find every font instance in your msstyle and you can change them all in one place
Save the msstyle

I followed the instructions in (I do hope I did not make any mistakes), tested it in WSB and the result was weird images all over.

I did NOT save the changes and exited WSB. I then tried to apply that theme from Windows Settings and got a black screen. :)
Well, it's quite late in my place. I'll try it again tomorrow.

Thank you. I'm truly grateful.

A beginner's mistake: I renamed "aero.msstyles" "Test.msstyles" but forgot to rename the MUI file as well.
I'm getting the correct/expected fonts now.

I suppose there's no way to replace all instances of "Segoe UI" with "Tahoma", is there?

Thank you very much. I appreciate your patience.

I get that message copying too but I just let it finish and everything is ok.

I don't know why you are having your font problems. Never saw that before.

Try using the Aero folder in the attached zipfile. The aero msstyle tests, saves, has no font problems etc...for me anyway.

If you still have font problems with this msstyle it must have something to do with your system fonts or default language. Maybe.

The themes I've been testing are constantly changing my fonts.
So I'm trying from scratch by coping the Aero folder and setting my fonts.
Could you please help me with

- I'll return to the images once I've figured the fonts issue.

Thank you very much.

Hello again 3am,

Trying to copy the aero ("C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\aero") folder, I get the following Permission messages:

Coping only the allowed content and opening the msstyles file in WSB, the fonts are gibberish and I can't test it.

What's the correct procedure? Should I look for any Font field and change it manually?

Thanks again.

I've just added an image to ""MaxNavbarComposited::Rebar > Background"". It worked only when Inactive.
I suppose I'd also have to play with "Toolbars, Headers, & Rebar > Rebar > NavBar > Aero > Normal" as you've suggested.
I'll do it tomorrow.

Thank you. I do appreciate it.

Use the Add Properties button:

FILENAME > IMAGEFILE > choose your image (must be png)

and/or whatever you found at that location in Classic
