Changing default font settings doesn't work

I’m sorry for probably asking a stupid question, but I’m frustrated and cannot find help anywhere online.

I want to change these things in my default formatting across all projects, but particularly my current project.

  • Font from Cochrin to New Times Roman
  • Font size from 14 to 12
  • First line indentation from “off” to “on”

I’m doing this:

  • Preferences
  • Formatting
  • click in the main text style box, making my changes, using the format bar
  • clicking Defaults and clicking “yes” to “Do you want this to change the default?”

But nothing changes. Is there a kind soul who can tell me what I’m doing wrong? In return, I’ll love you forever. :slight_smile:


This might help…

And if you want existing documents to update, you have to nudge them…

Documents > Convert > Convert Formatting to Default Text Style

Do I win the forever love? :laughing:

Briar - you did!! You totally did!
It was the nudging tip!
Gosh - how easily my frustration turned to joy.
Thanks. :stuck_out_tongue:

A pleasure.

Happy writing.
