Changing Default properties for Charts

    In SSRS 2008, is there any way to change the default font that is used for the chart labels and legends. For example, I'd like all of my charts to use Tahoma instead of Arial and I'm getting tired of changing this each time.

    I'd also like to be able to set the colors in advance so that every chart in a project gets created from the same palette, how can this be done?

    TIA

    See Barry King's post here: http://www.simple-talk.com/sql/reporting-services/reporting-services-with-style/[/url], I think you could do something like this by having a template with a default chart, and the properties for the chart stored in your db.
