Change Default Font

Post by mallured » 05 Apr 2016, 13:52

It used to be that I could change the default font if I opened Xpress with no document open, went to the Style Sheets window and changed the font in the Normal character style. In Xpress 2015, the Normal character style does not appear until a document is open. Is there any way of changing the default Normal font without having to create template files for each page size?

Thanks for helping -- Mike

Hi Mike,

what if you choose Edit->Style Sheets with no document open?

Thanks
Matthias

P.S.: I know of some people using a 24pt Dingbats font in red as their default font for "Normal" style sheet, so that they do not forget to change the style sheet.
