    Hi everyone, i just switched over to pages, because MS Office was too sluggish for me on Rosetta and NeoOffice is such a Ram Hog. I have a few questions about iWork. How do I set the default font to Times New Roman, Helvetica is nice, but i've been using Times since i started using a computer so i'd like to stick to that. Also how do i make the bullet style change from a dark "filled" bullet to an "empty" bullet when I press the tab key, like in the screen shot below. Thanks everyone.

    Inspector/Text/List and the Bullets & Numbering Drop down.

    I usually edit the Styles of the template close to what I need, and save that back as my document template.

    i tried that, but is there a way to configure pages so that everytime i press tab it automatically changes the bullet style, like in Office or NeoOffice?

    if you open the styles drawer and create a style with the bullet you require, you can assign a shortcut to it so you can quickly switch. Right click (ctrl-click) on the new bullet style and click 'hotkey'. Assign a function number (ie, F1, F2) and use that. Depending on the key you choose you may have to hold the fn key, at least I have to on my macbook. hopefully this is what you need
