When I start typing in a new document the default is Arial size 24. When I click on the size tool and resize to what I want (12) it works until I start a new line of text somewhere else on the document and it flips back to size 24. How do I change it to default to size 12 when I launch a new document?
Select the Artistic Text Tool (F8), before you start typing on the page, go to the Property Bar and change the point size to 12pt. A dialog "Change Document Defaults" will come up and you will be able to choose whether you would like it to be the default for Artistic, Callout, Dimension and Paragraph Text.
YES YES YES!!! This was driving me nuts, thank you so much
