Not sure of the default, but you can specify your default using goptions ftext="{true-type-font-name}", or goptions ftext={SAS-font-name}

CGMOF97L is also graphics device with 'hardware' fonts. You should be able to specify which one you want by using goptions CHARTYPE={chartype-#}, or HWCGM### in font specifications (e.g. title f=HWCGM006 "This text should be rendered Times Roman Bold")

Use SAS Explorer to view SASHELP.DEVICES.CGMOF97L. It should show Chartype Rows Cols Font Name Scalable 1 50 90 Helvetica Y 2 50 90 HelveticaBold Y 3 50 90 HelveticaItalic Y 4 50 90 HelveticaBoldItalic Y 5 50 90 TimesRoman Y 6 50 90 TimesRomanBold Y 7 50 90 TimesRomanItalic Y 8 50 90 TimesRomanBoldItalic Y 9 50 90 Courier Y 10 50 90 CourierBold Y 11 50 90 CourierItalic Y 12 50 90 CourierBoldItalic Y 13 50 90 Symbol Y 14 50 90 ZapfDingbats Y
