hi there

Anyone has a tip on modifying the default font upon opening the TextEdit program?
It is set by default to " ARIAL" , I'd like to have "GEORGIA".

    Open TextEdit preferences and click on the New Document tab. You should find two buttons labeled "Change" under the Font section. One sets the default for plain text and the other for Rich text.
