Problem changing default font size in Corel X7 H&S

I've read several other posts regarding how to change the default font size from 24 to any thing else and have tried every thing people have suggested and it does not work.

Working on an ancestry form and for every line I have to go in and manually change from 24pt to 10pt and it is really a huge pain.

Would someone from Corel to address this instead of other forum members that have other versions of CorelDraw.? PLEASE!!
