I have seen some references to this issue in Appleworks from around 2007, but nothing helpful.


I am using a custom font for creating knitting charts in Numbers. The problem I am having is that when I either use ⌘X or drag cell contents the font changes to Helvetica Neue - Size 10. Very irritating. Is there any way to set up a default font and font size for a document? If not, why? Helvetica Neue has nothing whatsoever to do with anything in my document.


Is this an iCloud issue perhaps?

    It is possible to set a default font and size for a table style, in a given document.


    If you set up a table with the font and font size you want, then look to the left under Table Styles, you will see one is highlighted. Click on the little triangle to the right of the style name and select "Redefine Style from Table"


    Now any table created with that style (in this document) will have your defaults and any changes made in those table should respect those defaults.


    You might want to save a copy of the document as a template, to make this style available in new documents.

    Ms Schultz,


    The way to turn Jeff's "this document" into "all documents" is to Save "this document" as a Template.
