Global preferences

Postby » Tue Jun 19, 2018 5:45 pm

I would like to make some global preferences that apply to all created documents.
A specific font, size, bold type.
Printing preferences.........print in draft quality, print documents last page to first.

Is there a template to customize? How do I make those changes apply to each document I create.

Thanks in advance

You need to customise your default template: details are in
[Tutorial] Creating a new default template

Then you need to apply that template to existing documents
