Changing Default Settings
To specify default settings for text and graphics objects (such as fill and outline settings, text font and style and so on) in CorelDRAW 8, do the following:
In CorelDRAW 7 you need to do this another way (however this method is also acceptable in CorelDRAW 8). Open Graphics and Text Styles roll-up from the Layout menu. Select one of the styles you need to change (Default Graphic, Default Artistic Text, or Default Paragraph Text), click it with the right mouse button and select Properties from the pop-up menu. Edit the style as you wish then click on the small button in the roll-up and select Template/Save As Default for New Documents.
If you need to modify several parameters, not all style properties, you can do this much easier. For example, you need to change the default font for the Artistic Text, then change it in Text toolbar or press Ctrl-T to bring up Format Text dialog. When you made changes to attributes, CorelDRAW will ask you whether you want to apply the changes to Artistic text or Paragraph text (or both). Check the appropriate checkbox and press OK. Then go to Graphics and Text Styles roll-up and save the changes for all new documents as described above. The same way you can change, fill or outline fill or attributes. For instance, click the color in the Color palette with no objects selected to assign default fill color for new objects and so on.
But don't forget to save changes for the new documents.
