This function creates a dx font element as default font stored in dgs.

Successful font creation is not guaranteed, and may fail due to hardware or memory limitations.

This function will copy the font file into dgs folder and then load it


element dgsSetSystemFont ( string filepath [, int size=9, bool bold=false, string quality="proof" ] )
