Changing Default Font

I notice on my Scrivener the default font for each file appears to be Optima and 13 points. I like Palatino at 12 point so with each new file I make those changes. I’d really like to be able to change the default to 12 point Palatino. Is there a way to do this?


Optima was the default for version 1.x - you are on version 2.x, though, aren’t you? Either way, you change it via the “Formatting” pane of the Preferences.
All the best,
