Trouble setting default type size in 1.5.0
« on: November 23, 2022, 12:43:39 am »
I use 1.5.0 because I'm running OS 10.11.6.  When I go to preferences and set the default typeface and type size it will not stay at the size I put in (12pt) but reverts to 11pt.  I have ot manually select and resize almost every other new line I type.  Am I doing something incorrectly?  BTW, I'm a former InDesign user so I'm having to relearn quite a bit!

If I recall correct Preferences only affects new documents, to affect the current document you need to use Document setup.

https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Help:Manual_Configprefs

You should probably use styles instead of setting the default for text frames (because I think the default is only applied when the frame is created, so if you change the default already created frames will not be affected).


But I just tried here in 1.5.2 (closest version to 1.5.0 I have installed) and there is maybe a bug (version 1.5.0 is old). Even when changing the default for the text frame tool there was no change to a newly created text frame.
