    When I open pages it always uses helvetica as the default font.

    Can i set it to a different one like times new roman as a default.

    I mean you can tell it to start up by default to a specific page style, why not a specific font also?

    You have to setup a template, and you can set pages to use that as the default. There's plenty of info in the help menu if you look for templates. For font, just open a blank document change the font and hit file>save as template. Then in the general tab of preferences select "Use Template" in the "For New Documents" and choose the template you just made and you're all set.

    nice thanks.

    is there a way to leave it on "show template chooser" and just have a font be default?
