As far as i see the reason for this behavior is not located in the
demo but in the constructors of TFPReportCustomBand and
TFPReportCustomMemo. The setting of the field FUseParentFont has no

Deleting the line which sets FUseParentFont and adding the setting of
the property UseParentFont to true after the creation of FFont will
solve the problem.

As i am not able to create a patch against trunk i post the changes

In both constructors it should look like

  //FUseParentFont := True;
  FFont := TFPReportFont.Create;
  UseParentFont := True;
