Hi,

How can I set the default font for text objects?

Whenever I make a new piece of text, the font defaults to Arial.  I want to set the default font to a different one.

I could not find a preference setting, but I may have verlooked something.https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/5-affinity-on-desktop-questions-mac-and-windows/&do=add#

Set some text the way you want it, with the text cursor in the text chose Edit > Defaults > Synchronize from Selection and then immediately choose  Edit > Defaults > Save.

I have done what "Old Bruce" suggested, and it appears to work for the open project (in Publisher) but if you start a new document, it reverts to Arial. Is there some way to set the default for all projects?

It sounds like you did the first part of what he suggested, but omitted the second part. It's the the Edit > Defaults > Save that would apply the change to future new projects.
