The link you posted -- step #5 states, "Click "Ok" when you are finished to save your settings and close the window. This changes your settings for the current document only".

Ya, I use to have Works on the system but don't any longer so just tossed up a search link.

Have to search more.

MS Works was a Good Program.

To change the default font or font size in the Works Word Processor, create a default word processor template configured to use the font and font size you want. To do this, follow these steps:
1.Open a blank document in the Works Word Processor.
2.Select the font and the font size that you want to use for all new word processor documents.
3.On the File menu, click Save As, and then click Template.
4.Type a name for the word processor template, click to select the Use this template for new Word Processor documents check box, and then click OK.

To change the default margins (or fonts as well) for all new documents follow these steps:
1.Open a blank document in the Works Word Processor.
2.Change the margins in File > Page Setup then click on OK
3.On the File menu, select Save As, and then click Template.
4.Type a name for the word processor template, click to select the Use this template for new Word Processor documents check box, and then click OK.

Now, I think you've got both scenarios covered -- making one-time changes to the default as well as creating a new default. Good job! :)

No problem because I can't remember all the stuff myself without it being on the machine. :) :)

I've got the Manuals in the back room but can't move around swiftly anymore. (LOL)
