This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

This seems simple enough, but on implementation, I get nothing. I've tried putting fields names as well as typing text in quotes, and nothing. Any ideas? This will be perfect for me if I get it to work.

It only works when a font is explicitly chosen. So if you highlight the text, and choose Arial, then the fucntion should return Arial. If you simply type text, and don't choose any font, the function doesn't work.
