If you switch from overriding the text preferences in a project to using the global settings or vice versa, specific conditions can make the older font (family and size) linger.
- Set the project preferences to override text formatting for the project, and set a different font from the main preferences
- Create a new document (A) in the project; it should use the project-specific preferences
- Deselect overriding main text formatting
- With the cursor at the end of the document A’s text, choose Documents>Convert>Formatting to Default Text Style (with no formatting preserved); it should convert to the main preferences
- Type at the end of the document (from where the cursor is)–the new text remains in the project-specific font.
This only seems to happen with the font; line spacing and indents don’t persist. It also only happens if the cursor is at the end of the text when the conversion happens and it will happen repeatedly–if after step 5 you again run the conversion while the cursor remains at the end of the doc, typing will continue in the wrong font. If you switch documents after the conversion and before typing, then return, the conversion will stick.
This can be done also going the other direction–set the project to override text preferences, then convert a document while the cursor is at the end of the text. New typing will use the old font.
