So your plan is to split the project into modules, then ask people on Daniweb to write each piece for you. Not cool.

It would help if your English was better, but from what I can make out of your post, you'd like for font settings to be saved right? Assuming you have implemented the font changing functionality, in VB (as far as I can remember), you can easily save app settings by using the built-in tools Visual Studio provides you.

TL;DR version: Right click on the TextBox and select Properties. On the Properties panel, expand (ApplicationSettings) and click on the three dots (...) button in (PropertyBindings). Find the Font property, click the drop-down menu and click New. Enter the Name for the setting and click OK.

I have attached a sample project so you can better understand it. Let me know if you need more help.

It seem difficult but its so easy:
For those who like to do this coding is here:

Add textbox, button, fontdialogbox, create new settings as font and change the type to "system.drawing.font" then simply go to value and click on the ... and add your dont that you want to open.

Button (change fonts)

Fontdialog1.showdialog()
Textbox.font = fontdialog1.font
my.setting.font = fontdialog1.font
My.setting.save()

Main Form_Load ....

textbox1.font = my.setting.font

Thank you...
