Text selection reverting to default with text/artistic text tools

I have found the same thing.   They not only revert to the default font Arial, but a default font size.

Hi there is a simple bug on text selection on all Affinity software - Photo, Designer and Publisher.  If you start with the text tool and then select a font you want to use the font selection reverts to Arial. This exists with the Art Text Tool as well as the Frame Text Tool.  The only workaround is to start typing in Arial and then change the text selection - and while this workaround works it really slows down my workflow, and honestly it's really quite annoying. This was not the case in previous betas and also with the MAS versions. Please fix.

In all three I could change it by going to Edit > Defaults > Synchronize from Selection then immediately going to Edit > Defaults > Save.

Set some text with the Artistic Text tool select the text and do the above, repeat for the Frame Text tool.

I think this may be the same thing you're seeing - do you mean BEFORE you draw the text box, you set the font but it won't change to your new font selection until AFTER you draw the text box? That's what I'm seeing. And it wasn't necessarily the default font as mine was Arial to start and then the next time I tried it was stuck on Garamond.

It is the same for any text property. You need to select a text object to become able to define any style property or to select a defined style in the list. Means. for all new text objects always the default style is used.

I also notice a difference towards betas before v337: As soon I had used a custom style, then any new created frames got that recently used style. – This seems to be broken in v337.
