Can you change the default text style in CorelDRAW? Yes. Hereâ€™s how:
On a blank page, select the TEXT tool (the â€œAâ€). Then go to the top where you can pull down the menu of available fonts and click on the one you want to be the new default. When you do, a box will open up with four options. Select the type of text you want this to apply to: For our purposes, it will likely be either Artistic Text or Paragraph Text or both. Then click â€œOKâ€.
As simple as that, you have a new default font. You can do the same thing for the text size.
Now, the bad news: This change will apply ONLY to the page you are working on. If you open a new page, it will return to the normal defaults of Arial. If there is a way to make a permanent change in the default font style or size, I donâ€™t know how to do it and apparently, neither does anyone else.
Still, if you are going to do a lot of text elements on a job, you can save a lot of clicks by setting new defaults for the page(s) you are working on.
