Sometimes when I type data into a cell, it will be a different text format from the rest of the cells that I have specified a format for.


For example: I will select a group of cells and choose certain formatting options such as 18pt, helvetica, center aligned etc.


But sometimes when I enter data into one of those (blank) cells, the data shows as the default 12pt, arial, left aligned etc.


I am unsure of why it loses its formatting but I would like to make sure that formatting stays permanent.  Can anyone instruct me how to do this?
