are you sure that you run the command as documented, eg:

    pd -font-face "Times New Roman"

...or are you instead just assuming that adding the text '-font-face "Times New Roman"' (without the single-quotes) to the startup options in the preferences will do the same?

because i'm pretty sure that it won't. thr parser used by the shelland by pd is quoye different in how it handles quoted strings.

there is a PR [741]  that fixes this.
