Good afternoon

I use Avenir Light 14 as my default font for my Blurb books. However, whenever I add a Photo Description cell, I then have to click the Text Style Preset and select my preset otherwise the font automatically default to Myriad Pro 12 pt. How can I change the default font from Myriad Pro to Avenir Light? Or if this isn't possible how can I make LR keep the last font used?

Same question for Photo Border Width which seems to be 3.5 by default.

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction - I have been looking for a little while with no success.

Many thanks in advance

I also see this annoying problem, and I do not know of a 'default'.
Even in the one text cell I can set my preferred Preset by name, then even selecting the cell again the Preset now shows as "Preset Name (Edited)" with the font name in the Type Panel returning to Myriad!
I can only suggest to complete the entry of all text in the book then using the menu to change ALL text to your preferred Preset.
Select all Text Cells [Ctrl+Alt+A]

Thank you for replying. I do use the trick you mention but I may then have to go through the entire book to ensure that placement, spacing and size still look as I intended. For me the quickest way is to copy and paste the text but it would be so much easier if I could just set the font up as default for that particular book or if I was able to create a preset that isn't edited each time I want to use it and doesn't revert to the default Myriad Pro.
Glad to hear that I am not missing something obvious though and that others have the same niggles :).
Again thank you.
