table and type problem


indesign CS5 mac I insert a table set font size to 14 then type. Go to the next row/column start to type and font reverts to 24pt
and the swatch/stroke changes and reverts from the solid to the ourline. This has been driving me nuts trying to find how to set so to be able to type without these changes happening automatically.  

RE: table and type problem

Select the whole table, define the font size to 14pt, do the same for the strokes.


RE: table and type problem

there is a very simple way to change the default type, or for that matter any other default setting, such as colours stroke etc etc.
Open up indesign and make sure you have no open documents. If you are given the option of selecting a document, close the selection window.
Even without an open document you can still change any settings including typefaces, and these then become the default.
When you open up a new document any settings you changed whilst having NO DOCUMENT OPEN will of set as the default in your new document :)

RE: table and type problem

Thank you for taking the trouble & pointing me in the right direction
