    I'm working on my first Book. Is there a way to change the default font and size and apply globally in your book?

    I'm finding I have to change the font and size (from the default) on every page in every text box which is getting very tedious. LR also supplies a LONG list of fonts which you can't move thru alphabetically. One must keep moving down , one by one, until the one you want is found.

    Thanks in advance.

    To set a default font for the whole book-
    1. From the Menu- Select ALL text cells-
    2. Set the Font options in the "Type" panel.

    To create Presets-
    3. Choose a font then Click the Drop-down menu (beside "Text Style Preset"-- "Custom:" ) and you can save the current settings (font & Size , etc) as a new Preset.
    4. Create Font Presets for all your commonly used fonts.

    To create Favorites-
    5. Right-click within the font box (on a font name) and "Add to Favorites". Favorites appear in the drop-down menu at the end of the font box

    Thanks, very helpful. And a good start.

    I'm still confused on a few things which I will tackle tonight and probably ask for more help.
