Computer Modern.

In my opinion it is wrong to use a different font in figures.  I
assume that Inkscape uses system fonts like Times or Palatino, which
are ubiquitous.  They are supported by TeX, too.

If you like Palatino, for instance, and you are using LaTeX, try


in this order.  mathpazo is needed for math support and tgpagella
provides glyphs for almost all Latin languages.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
