Publisher not defaulting after new items


Recommended Posts

I have a couple of weird issues with Publisher. First one I can live with, is that after closing a file I've been working on and opening a new blank page, the closed file very briefly appears for a minute second and disappears. It's like a ghost image appearing for a brief nano second. It's not really a problem, it's just weird.

The second issue, I'm finding annoying and frustrating and only recently happened. I may have pressed something, I don't know but it happens all the same. I'll try to explain this best as I can. Let's say I select say for example text and alter the leading and the colour and the font and size of the font and type everything on the page. Once finished with that selection, the leading, colour and everything else I've selected remains in place for the next selection and doesn't return to it's default settings, meaning that I have to spend time altering all these settings for every new text frame that I put on the page. The same happens with shapes, lines and everything else. How do I get Publisher to return to its defaults with everything new that I select?

Never seen that before. Your OS & Version may be relevant plus a video may help in determining what is happening

Use the Revert Defaults icon in the main toolbar prior to creating a new object or if an object is already created & still selected then the Revert Defaults icon will reset it back to the default settings
