Using a Macro to Change Drawing Fonts

I am trying to use Solidworks Macro Recorder to automate a seemingly simple task. I want to change the fonts used for all the options under "Tools/Options/Document Properties/Annotation Font". I've recorded the keystrokes/mouse movements to do this using the recorder. When I run it, nothing happens. If i use the macro editor to look at the macro, it's essentially empty.

I'm obviously doing something fundamentally wrong, but I don't know what.

Can the Macro Recorder access/change these options?

Is there another/better way to do this?

I have changed the drawing sheet templates & part templates to use the fonts I want, but we have hundreds of files saved with the old fonts. I need a method of mass updating them. I thought a macro woud be a good way to do this. I have to open many of them for other reasons, but don't want to have to do these changes manually if I can avoid it.

Any suggestions or ideas?
