Arial 24 pt jumps in every time I click for a new text entry despite default size is set to Arial 12 (X7 Version 17.6 on Windows 10 Pro ).Pressing F8 when nothing selected properly shows Arial 12 pt, but as soon as I click to the page for actual new text entry it reverts back to Arial 24 pt. I need then manually set it to 12 pt each time. Restarting computer or updating to a new version does not help.
It is quite annoying feature, please help.
Try change Document - Styles
I have Corel 2017 and have the same problem. When I go to Document, I have all those options except "Styles". This doesn't work for me. I've clicked "save settings as default" countless times.
Default Object Properties are controlled by styles, and you can set them in the Object Styles docker:
When you have "Artistic Text" selected there, then changing the properties in the lower part of the docker sets those properties for new Artistic Text created in that document.
If you want to save it as the default for Artistic Text in new documents, you can right-click on "Artistic Text", then click on "Set as New Document Default".
That's not the only way to accomplish that, but it's one way to do it.
I have the same problem in CorelDraw X7 Home & Student V126.96.36.1992
I have tried all the suggestions regarding setting the default font size but whatever I try as soon as I click somewhere to place text it reverts to Arial 24 point.Unfortunately it appears the Home & Student edition does not have an Object Styles docker - only Object Properties which appears not have the Default Object Properties option.
Has anyone any idea how to set the default font size or is it just something I have to live with in this cut down version?
