    After the default font has been changed if a carriage return or down arrow key is used the next line of type will be back in Calibri 11. How do I resolve this so that when I change to Courier New 12 every thing stays in this font and no changing back or resetting occurs.

    If changing the default font in OneNote 2010 actually worked it would be nice. I have set the font and size to Courier New 12 point and told OneNote 2010 to make this default however any time I open a new page or new book this damn program uses Calibri 11 point instead of the default I have set.

    I’m wondering how to change the default font too but in OneNote 2012 or 2011, can’t remember which one. Also, why when I am finished with my highlight I can only change the colour but not fully take the highlight away?

    Thanks!
